The tribal communities of the region weave beautiful baskets from bamboo in different shapes, designs and sizes. The traditional technique of basketry practiced by them is centuries old. To make attractive baskets, naturally dried bamboo or cane is split into required widths and the pieces are then woven together with the warp reaching out from the central base. The functionality of the baskets decides their shapes and sizes. The basic design of the basket focuses on its usability, mainly for the pastoral communities in the rural areas. The base of these baskets is usually broad so that it is easier for the locals to carry them on their heads. When shopping in Silvassa, tourists must not forget to carry a beautiful basket made by local craftsmen as a souvenir.
