Traditionally, the mats were woven for households and used for sitting and sleeping purposes. No colours were used. The surface was rough.




Other than standard-sized mats (5 ft x 6ft), weavers are now making diversified products like bed sheets, shawls, door mats and floor mats, bags. They also dye the fibers and weave bright-coloured mats. Some are developing mats and other products using natural fibers like banana, cotton and wool which are more market-worthy. Some of the artists are also knowledgeable on weaving on looms and making products like jackets.
