Bamboo Work(Basketry)

The forests in Nagaland are rich in Bamboo and cane. Naturally therefore, Nagas are expert basket makers. The craft is restricted to men.


Blacksmithy, though a relatively recent craft, is more well-liked. The smiths create the normal requirements of villagers like the Dao, axe, sickle, knives, spear points and butts etc.

Pottery is not very well-liked and is practiced in very little villages. There is no spinning wheel; the Nagas make their pots by the use of hands only. The craft is restricted to women and the turnover is not large.


In Nagaland, rotary and weaving is an exclusive monopoly of the women. Colourful shawls, bags and jackets are woven out of this workmanship.
