The raw material, Golden Grass locally known as Kaincha, a wild grass that grows in marshy areas after the first monsoon. Usually, women set out in groups, very often having to wade through water to collect sufficient golden grass. Once collected the grass is split into two even strands and is left out to dry. Women use their teeth to split each stem along its length. Once split, the golden grass is ready to be dried in the sun. Each lot of collected raw material has to be dried for four or five days. As the grass dries up, its colour changes from pale green to a mild yellow. Gradually, this takes on a tinge of golden yellow. Some intricate designs use natural dyes to contrast with the rich golden colour. Women groups make golden grass items like mats and bowls. The beauty of these products are now being widely recognized.
