Bamboo Handicraft

 Bamboo Art - How it is done?

It's a small village in the Western part of Odisha ( State in the Eastern Part of India ) where it is hard to believe a community of people ( almost entire village ) produces this kind of artistic products from Bamboo. When I saw their art for the first time, I was mesmerized, all manual work. It was unbelievable to see what a bare hand can produce. They have been doing this art for years and that may be the trick, but still ..

We at SharePyar have collaborated with them to get their products to the entire world, which was earlier not visible outside and their work had never been appreciated by anyone. They still are poor and do this part time these days as there is no demand of their product around their area. So we at SharePyar want to showcase their art to a wider audience & in this process it will give them a regular earning stream.

How these products are made:

1) Bamboo Tree

 2) Bamboo Roots
