Sisal Mats, Rugs & Carpets
Known as a ‘future fibre’, helpful in controlling soil erosion, sisal plant is found in central Indian terrains especially in the states of Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and other deciduous geographies.
Pragati Sashakti Karan Sanghathan, a women-based NGO, in the Seoni district of Madhya Pradesh, trains and hosts at fairs and festivals across states showcasing sisal dining mats, doormats, dolls, bags, purses and wall hangings.
The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) acknowledges sisal as the ‘fibre of the future’ for the role it plays in absorbing carbon dioxide, much more than the plant releases to the environment.
Sisal plantations, therefore, not only generate livelihoods through handicrafts, but also contribute to sustainable solutions to present day climate change adaptations.
