  • The community is socio-economically poor and NGOs around the area have been helping them for the last few years.
  • The community is known for making kitchen accessories made of locally available wood.
  • The wood used in making the kitchen accessory is from local babul or neem tree which is chiselled in their simple self-made lathe made of wood and a string operated by hand, to get the desired shape.
  • The lathe is turned with lac to get the desired base colour.
  • On top of this the artisan adds layers of colours to get various designs.
  • Lac is obtained from sap of Rhus tree, heated and mixed with groundnut oil and colour to form a thick, opaque paste.
  • Colours are obtained through natural ways. Some examples are: brown is from the natural lac colour, black by burning thor-ka-ped, lemon yellow from haldi, blue from neem leaf & castor oil, maroon from natural stone found in the forest etc.
