Meet this Udhampur family, striving to keep the age-old bamboo craft alive

Feb 06, 2021 12:23 IST

Meet Surma and his wife, a family in Udhampur, striving to keep the age-old bamboo craft tradition alive. 

Bamboo is a dying craft, owing to lack of demand and cheaper alternatives in the market. But Surma's family is doing whatever it takes to revive the art form through their bamboo baskets, since the last 40 years.

The husband and wife earn their livelihood by selling these baskets in the local market. 

Bamboo helps mitigate the pressure on the environment as it is a good substitute to wood. It is one of the fastest growing and highest yielding renewable natural resources.
