All bamboo and cane products are made by hand. People in central Bhutan often spend the quieter winter months- after the harvest is over- making bamboo crafts for the daily use. Bamboo baskets and cane containers (bangchus) are used in every home as plates and containers. Traditional cane hats are popular while tea strainers, winnowing baskets, and bamboo mats are utilities.
Bhutan’s cane craftwork are coloured in natural dye like turmeric and lac.
