Beautiful hand crafted day to day used articles of Manipur. Kouna reed is grown in marshy lands and paddy fields where cultivation is no more suited. Beautiful kouna mats adorn every household in manipur. These mats are soft and very long lasting. No colours. Bamboo baskets and trays are used to store vegetables and fruits. Next picture is of traditional traps in forms of baskets to trap fishes. There is an whole array of items, all natural products and lovingly handcrafted by local artisans. Wait for my next post on my purchases.
