These craft items included fancy footwear of bamboo, jute slippers, bamboo basketry, Kauna cushions, terracotta, jute items, bags and wall hangings, enticing Muga saris from Assam, Naga shawls, embroidery or hand woven silk or cotton saris, shapes of apples and bunch of grapes carved in wood from Tripura, Meghalaya made Lampshades and baskets from green bamboo and wove traditional handlooms.
