The landscape of Bekal is dotted with swaying coconut trees. Thanks to the abundance of these, the talented craftsmen of Kerala have been experimenting with their creativity since ages and creating beautiful and eco-friendly products from shells of coconuts. The process of crafting these articles is an intricate one. Firstly, the hard coconut shell is smoothened, then it is cut and carved using edge tools, especially designed for the purpose. From daily use items like bowls, tea pots, cups, spoons and ash-trays to decorative items like lamp shades, vases, wall hangings and floor mats, the handicraft stores in Bekal house a wide range of coconut shell handicraft articles. Some products made from coconut shells like hookahs and large vases are also encased in brass to enhance their beauty and durability.
