North-east India is no doubt a resource centric region of our country, whether its wildlife or minerals or culture or articrafts.
This time in Dastakar, I met this stall. So colourful and bright, vibrant and gorgeous... The hand woven, sun tanned, colourful rattan baskats from NE (I think Meghalaya stall) was impressive. The cost of these baskets was 400- 800 bucks and these varied in sizes. Love love... I wished if Fifi would have bought one for me..! Beutifully hand crafted into colours like violet, yellow ochre, bright yellow, fuschia, orange, burgandy, red, brown, sap green, indigo, natural dry grass colour.... and many more! The stall was colourful and baskety...! I am gonna buy one of these one day for sure.. :)
