Producing coiled bamboo items is a multi-stage process. The artisan coils narrow bamboo strips around a form, working inward to create the desired product. The product is then soaked in glue and placed in the sun to dry. Next the artisans sand or shave both sides of the piece to remove rough edges. Artisans then apply lacquer, followed by varnish. After this they wash and sand the product resulting in a perfectly smooth finish. Features watertight pvc liner.
