Bamboo crafts from Nepal include beds, chairs, pen case, basket, dust bin, wind chime, hanging planters, bench, photo frame, cascading foundation, mirror case, etc. The Eastern, Central and the Western parts of Nepal are rich in bamboo. Despite their artistic use, bamboos are also used for construction of house, for beams, pole, roof, fencing, ladder, lattice, scaffolding, netting, house walls, etc. Have you ever heard about a bamboo body umbrella, typically called Ghum in Nepali? It is also made from bamboo. People also make mat, Doko, Dalo, Namlo, Madami basket from bamboo. If there is anything where the arts are extensively depicted in Nepal, it is bamboo.
In Nepal, poor and ethnic communities are found to be more dependent on bamboo. They produce various kinds of bamboo crafts, especially paying more concentration to the traditional and religious role of the product they are making, that have made them earn few money. Beside them, other skilled craftsmen are also seen to be extensively producing bamboo crafts. It must be noted that, what often is produced depends on where it is made. For example, Doko and Dalo, may not be found in crafts from Terai. Dust Bin, Clock Case, may not be found in the crafts from local hilly people. Commercial craftsmen weave the traditional and modern aspects together to produce various kinds of bamboo crafts.
Another reason for why Nepalese people are so dependent on bamboo is that the shoot of bamboos can be eaten as vegetable, if they are grown properly. A typical Nepali in remote part of Nepal, early in the morning, brushes his/her teeth with the thin stem of bamboo. Moreover, the walls in the traditional thatched houses in remote part of Nepal are made from bamboo. As you might have noticed, bamboo has been a source of shelter, food, and art since very ancient time in Nepal. Thus, you can find all different shorts of artistic blend in bamboo crafts from Nepal.
