In Kudal, Sindhudurg district, Maharasthra, KONBAC, an INBAR-established community-based NGO, has organized a women’s self-help group (SHG) to produce industrial handcrafted bread (roti) baskets. These roti baskets, which are woven from machine-processed bamboo raw materials, are superior to traditional handicraft baskets, in terms of both quality and aesthetic value. The project has enabled rural women to engage in high-value processing activities, with roti baskets being sold to new high-end markets, such as resorts and restaurants, in the nearby Goa tourist region. Women producers are now adding 800% to the value of original raw bamboo materials. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai is the other implementing partner for this activity. Prof. A.G. Rao from the Bambu Studio, the design unit of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mumbai designed the roti baskets in collaboration with KONBAC.
