Arts

Weavers make baskets, items from straw, and mat fans. To decorate them, the artist will use dye that is made of flowers and local roots of plants. The most common color they will use is usually green and violet. Potters make clay pots in which can keep water cool on hot days. They usually shape their clay without a wheel but rather with their hands. Then once they are done firing the clay and putting on glaze and everything else, they will sell it to the market for profit for women without husbands who do the pottery or art to provide things for their family like food and shelter.
