Rambaans is a type of the sisal plant, which grows in abundance in the lower hills of Uttarakhand. The plant has long fleshy blades as leaves which radiate from the roots. A process similar to the one used for extracting jute and hemp using the decorticator machine, is used to extract a glossy but stiff cream-coloured fibre. It is brought into use after having been processed and treated to make utility and decorative products. The fibre is brought into use to make toys, rope, tablemats, bags and hats among other things by either bunching, rolling or braiding it.
This craft is practiced in the Dehradun district of Uttarakhand.
