Bamboo handicrafts of Agartala are pivoted in the bamboo splitting technique. Splitting of bamboo is recently mechanised at various training centres and common facilities set up by government. The objects very intricately designed and decorated are used in various day to day activities. The products range from screens, false ceilings, wall panels, screens, plaques and planters. The product innovation has lead to a newer bamboo craft known as root carving. The bamboo roots are carved by many artisans in the region as a new project from State Handicrafts Development Corporation. Objects like statues, composite sculptures are now depicted through bamboo root carvings.
