It is a small greenish grey hedge plant. The leaves have a thorn at the tip and grows up to a height of 2 - 3 ft. These leaves yield valuable fibre. Strongest and hardest fibre and is preferred for high traffic area both in residential andcommercialapplication.Readilyacceptsdyesandiseasy tomaintain. Sisal is found in abundance in this area. It is not the main plantation. The leaves were locally used to make ropes for tieing wood and grass bundles. Propagation The propagation happens by removing and re-rooting the suckers. Sisal products have a very large market potential in the export market, as also they will have in the domestic market. Sisal is a very strong, lustrous natural fibre and can take the wear and tear equivalent of coir. The huge advantage of sisal has over coir is that it is a white material which take the dye very well and is softer than coir. Apart from floor coverings, products made from braided sisal like bins, bags etc are also in demand. the sisal craft Sisal is being extracted through a machine Extracted sisal is being dried Dried sisal fibre which is used for making ropes & braids The sisal plant THESISALCRAFT Common Name Local Name Botanical Name Available region Sisal Kattale Agave sisalana Local (Chamarajnagar dist.)
  • 6. 5 DESIGN DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP FOR SISAL CRAFT The leaves of Agave yield a strong fibre, which is used for making ropes, cordage and twines. The shorter fibre and bristles are used for making mops and suited for cordage. It is also being used to manufacture coarse fabrics. It is commonly used for binders, twines, fishing nets, doormats, rugs, carpets, etc. The waste of the fibre is used for making paper and paperboards. Current Sisal raw material price at Kuderu is about Rs. 15-20 per kg. Skills & Techniques of Sisal craft artisans at Kuderu Main skills in this cluster are rope making and braiding. Rope making Rope making is one of the most basic skill for converting any linear mate- rial into a usable stage. It is practiced in most of the craft pockets. Ropes can be made by two methods vis, hand spinning and machine spinning. Materials like sisal, jute, banana bark and various natural fibres are soaked in water and that material are taken and rolled between the palms. The material is twisted in only one direction thus obtaining a ‘S-twist’ or a ‘Z- twist’. Machine spinning is a technique adopted by the locals for faster production. It involves a very simple mechanism, consisting of cycle wheel with hooks fixed on them and a handle to rotate the wheel. Then sisal fibre is fixed on the metal wheel hook, then one person rotates the wheel and four or less persons make the rope by joining sisal fibre. Number of people required for making rope on machine depends on the number of hooks on it, generally two to three people are required on one hook. Braiding Braiding is another important skill used in this craft pocket. Braiding is extensively used here for making products. Commonly the plait braids are used.
