Ringhal (Arundinaria falcatta) or dwarf bamboo have been traditionally harvested from the oak forests on a subsistence basis. It is then fabricated by local craftsmen, into a number of useful household products including, mats (chettai), a variety of baskets for carrying biomass, storing household goods, apart from religious purposes. It is a male-dominated activity mainly undertaken by the schedule caste members of the community.
The ringhals project was initiated by our promoter organization AT India in 2004, when the ringhal craftsmen were organized under Ringhal Bunkar Sangathans (ringhal worker groups). Presently, there are 38 Ringhal Bunkar Samithis in all, with a total of 358 members. The success of AT India’s ringhal project can be gauged from the fact that in less than 2 years of its initiation (in 2004), commercialization of the activity was underway.
