Sitalpati is made with cane slips From the cane, the bust fibre is extracted in various layers as the quality of the Pati depends on the different layers of the cane used.. This variety of cane grows in abundance in Coochbehar district of West Bengal. Fine cane slips are cut and woven to make household mats called Sitalpati meaning cool mats. The business is mainly family based; men are engaged in growing and extracting fiber while women are mostly engaged in weaving. A wide range of mats (patis) are produced, which include, Kamalkosh, coloured Pati and Pati with woven letters. The comfort and aesthetic appeal are obtained by the weaver’s skills, weaving action and innovative use of colour, design and weave. Sitalpati has been included since RCH project (2013-2016) and also included in RCCH Phase I and II and covers a total of 3807 artists.
