MUMBAI: Snapdeal, India’s leading value-focused marketplace, has launched hand-made bamboo products from Jharkhand on its platform. The products were launched in partnership with Mukhya Mantri Laghu Kutir Udyog Vikas Board (MMLKUB), an initiative of the Department of Industries, Government of Jharkhand.

The selection will include a curated range of home and kitchen accessories and furniture made by the Kalindi and Sabars tribes from Jharkhand. Daily use items like baskets, racks, and stands are expected to be fast-moving items.

In line with the emphasis on reducing the use of plastic, there is also bamboo cutlery and kitchen range that includes straws, spoons, forks, bowls, mugs, tray, bottle cover, boxes, coasters and glasses.

Home decor items like lamps, sofa sets, tables, chairs, beds, showpieces, mats and vases made in warm tones of traditional hardwood are also part of the selection.

The artisans have also made unique fashion accessories like bangles, hair clips, earrings, necklaces, bags that depict the distinctive culture of the region. Kanshi grass, palm leaves, and beads made in eco-friendly material are also used in making the products.

Snapdeal has conducted a “train-the-trainers” program that will help officials of MMLKUB train artisans to sign up and list their products on the Snapdeal platform, using a simple 4-step sign-up process, which needs only bank details, phone & email and a GST number.

With the partnership, Snapdeal aims to make the indigenous bamboo industry mainstream outside Jharkhand.

“Jharkhand has high-quality bamboo in abundance. The tribes of this region are also skilled to make aesthetically appealing and functional items for Indian households. We are delighted to bring these fun yet eco-friendly bamboo items on our platform,” says Snapdeal spokesperson.

“Snapdeal's close connect with buyers from all over the country, including in the smaller cities, is a valuable opportunity to take the indigenous bamboo craft of Jharkhand deeper in India. Also, the training provided by Snapdeal to officials of the Department of Industries, govt of Jharkhand will help drive greater impact for this joint initiative," Government of Jharkhand secretary, industry K. Ravi Kumar.
