The Making..
​​

The products are made by carving a single raw coconut. Extreme skills and patience is required in making up this product and only very few artisans are engaged in it. The product is 100% manually carved in a single coconut. Careful selection of full coconuts at farm level has to be done, in which the coconut husk should be larger than the coconut shell. Even if the full coconuts are carefully selected, out of 100 only 10 for example will be suitable for making the product.



Once the coconut is selected, the required design is drawn on one side of it and the water and fruit is removed by making a hole on the other. After drying it, the coconut base is ready. No artificial paint or coloring agent is coated on the surface. The natural color of the coconut husk enhances the beauty.

The craftsman's skill is essential to achieve sharp features. Final touches are given with small knives and cutters. To bring out a single product, involvement of 3 different skilled artisans working from 1-7 days is required.
