In design and form the product design range is simple, original and aesthetic and is geared to regular home use. In this it also attempts to place itself in the gift market. The products have a vegetable or natural dye component in the weave and often an overall rustic finish. The essentially bamboo products include fine basketry, cane binding work, minimal wood elements and some loin loom weaving, which have been differently combined to create a range of home accessories and lights. The use of the traditional skill of bamboo and cane basketry to develop new product designs lies at the core of this craft design development programme. As the first design development exercise with the women’s group, it tries to make best use of the limited existing basketry skills and introduces other material combinations for effective and aesthetic design.
