Coir Toys of Odisha

Coir Toys of Odisha


Both fine and coarse varieties of coir fibre, locally found in the coastal areas, are used. The artisan conceptualises the motifs. The designs are created by piling the coir and tying it with a strong thread. By tying the thread in a zigzag net style, the design is highlighted. The coir is coloured to give it an attractive appearance. This craft is practised mainly at Puri, Sakhigopal, Batamangala, Pipli, Bhubaneswar and Kendrapara.
