Admire the tribal arts on the verge of extinctionTheir relative isolation resulted in unique forms of artworks not seen anywhere else. The adivasis produce unique artworks that haven't changed since centuries. They use all the local material available to them to make the art pieces. Adivasi wood-carvings, bell metal products, terracotta items, and bamboo decorative pieces are true collector's items.Cotton fabrics, made from Kosa string which is produced from a worm found in the forest, are a delight to wear. The hand printing is done with the natural vegetable dye extracted from aal, found in the Bastar forest. Kondagaon is the best place to buy the artworks and see the artisans in action.
