A piece of bamboo can be used to create wonders, and to get a glimpse of them, pay a visit to ‘Wondergrass’ bamboo craft products exhibition at Women’s Association Hall at Diwan’s Road. The unique show has an array of beautiful handicrafts created from bamboo like lanterns of varied hues and sizes, eye-catchy pen stands, bamboo jewellery with an ethnic touch, gift items like book shaped vessels and paintings.

In the jewellery section, there are chains, ear rings, bracelets and bangles that are painted using natural colours. The starting price is from `30.

For the womenfolk of the city, another attraction is the bag section which has a collection of wallets, sling bags and ladies bags.

Clocks, wall hangings, kitchen utensils and flowers made using bamboo are other items on sale. The maximum price rate is `4,000.

The exhibition is organised jointly by Uravu, an NGO working for the promotion of bamboo products in Wayanad and the Development Commissioner (handicrafts) of the Union Ministry of Textiles.

The traditional culture and the acumen of the craftsmen of Wayanad are well seen in the items displayed.

Uravu also provides a means of living for the tribal community of the district. The eco-friendly crafts are not only a means of survival for the people there, but also a good example for the urban population to live in terms with nature.

The organisers say the aim of the show is to reach the products to maximum number of people.

The show is there till March two.
