Bounded by the foothills of Bhutan in the north, Brahmaputra river in the south, Darrang and Kamrup districts in the east and Barpeta district in the west, Nalbari is an ideal town in terms of culture and tradition.
Bamboo craft in Nalbari
Despite the apparent influence of various cultures and increased dependency on modern technology, the town still has a strong connect with the nature and resorts to the use of natural materials like bamboo for preparation of various crafts.
From the busy market place in the city to the paddy fields in the outskirts of the town, the use and applicability of bamboo is very much evident. Huge grain storing bamboo baskets, net for catching fish, sieve, wall hanging and even intricate jewellery are made with this amazing variety of grass. However most of these bamboo crafts are used for their daily without much interest by the local people to sell them for commercial purpose.
