Types of Craftsmen in Assam
Different regions of Assam are known for their different forms of art and handicrafts. The people of Assam were very skilful in weaving embroidered silk cloths. The Assamese were excellent carpenters who made their boxes, trays, stools and chairs by carving these out of a single block of wood. Two categories of people, Kumars and Hiras made pottery their own means of livelihood. But the ones that carved out a niche are the terracotta craftsmen of Asarikandi in Dhubri district. The distinctive style has made Asarikandi an ethnic art brand in India. Asarikandi is also known for its Sholapith Craft, made from the soft core of a special kind of reed.
