Lamp shades, paper weights and other items are beautifully crafted out of coconut shells, coir products, conch and sea shell articles especially the very popular snake boat model. Metal jewellery and granite statures can be bought all over Kerala.
The finesse of intricate designs, the sheen of fine craftsmanship, the bright yet elegant simplicity of colours and the beautiful texture of the fabric are what makes Kerala handloom products so special. One would never guess that they are hand woven by families of weavers, who have been in this tradition for centuries.
Kerala is also well-known for carvings in wood, especially woods like rosewood and sandalwood, in the shape of idols of gods and goddesses and animals like elephants.
