Wood-carving is a highly evolved craft in Kerala, and the best examples are seen in the temples and churches.
As coconut grows here in abundance, many of the crafts of Kerala are woven and carved around the coconut. Coconut Shell products, polished Coconut Ashtrays, Coir Carpets, Floor Mats and wall hangings are some of the coconut products available in the markets.
Granite with its hard texture is generally used to make idols in Kerala. The granite chosen for the idol is termed as Sila.
