Bamboo weaving (tsharzo)

Cane and bamboo products always complemented wood and pottery as domestic items. Villagers living near bamboo groves (the bamboos thrive up to an altitude of 3000m) cut, split, dry and weave the bamboos, especially to make fencing for the fields or roofs mats for temporary sheds. Domestic items such as plates, baskets, quivers, sieves, alcohol containers were woven in semi-tropical regions and villagers used both the outer and inner layers of the bamboo.
