Sikki Craft

Sikki Grass Art WorkSikki is the seasonal wild grass that has a natural golden tint and it grows in marshy areas near water bodies and harvested during rainy season (JULY AND AUGUST). Sikki is wired and stitched together with the pasikki, dyed in several different shades, using a thick needle called takua.
 
This grass has served as a vital raw material in making of a variety of products since ancient timesThere is hardly any ritual where it is not taken into account, figures of deities and votive offerings are woven during festivals, young women weave baskets known as ‘Pauti’ which is used to exchange gifts in a wedding, household items such as boxes, toys, jewelry and murals are also crafted out of this grass. The pauti, is a sentimental gift that accompanies the bride when she leaves her home after her wedding. Indeed, for the bride, next to the wooden container for sindoor (sinhora), is a precious gift that she treasures for her entire life.
 
 
And now the modern artists have developed and innovated some new techniques of Cutting, Bending and Pasting the Sikki grass to get our unique designs other than traditional weaving techniques. Dheerendra Kumar is one of the very talented and famous Sikki Grass Artists from Patna, Bihar.
