Photographer's Note

I took this shot in a Handicraft Fair in West Bengal state...Here these two ladies are busy with their bamboo made products (hats) work...and a tiny girl is taking rest...

The geographical location of this state gifted this land with a vast expanse of bamboo forests which fulfills most of its domestic requirements of daily use.The popular cane and bamboo products which are widely used are cane vessels, cane belts, bamboo mugs, baskets, hats, household goods like curtain, bed, mats and varieties of ornaments and jewelries.

About Handicraft:
Handicraft, more precisely expressed as artisanic handicraft, sometimes also called artisanry, is a type of work where useful and decorative devices are made completely by hand or by using only simple tools. It is a traditional main sector of craft. Usually the term is applied to traditional means of making goods. The individual artisanship of the items is a paramount criterion, such items often have cultural and/or religious significance. Items made by mass production or machines are not handicraft goods.
Handicraft goods are generally considered more traditional work, in traditional non-industrial and transitional societies created as a somewhat more necessary part of daily life
