Cane & Bamboo of Karnataka

Cane & Bamboo of Karnataka

Baskets, mats, cane furniture, lamp shades and wall hangings are just some of the products crafted in Karnataka. The baskets made today are either coiled or plaited and are classified according to their function of carrying or storing. Bamboo is cultivated across Karnataka and matures in three or four years. Good varieties of cane are also grown and these mature in three years. Baskets are made of split bamboo and cane and woven in checks, twills, or wicker patterns. The outcome is aesthetically appealing and practically sound and thus appeals to a wide range of tastes and markets.
