The local handicrafts

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/10/31

The local handicrafts are also known to the outside world such as the Menba wood bowel and bamboo ware, the Luoba stone pan and pottery. The Luoba stone pan is famous for its unique material and design. The pottery is rough pottery, which the locals use for barter. The Menba wood bowel is made of some hard wood like that of azalea, willow and birch. It gives a special flavor to the wine or ghee tea it contains. The portable bowel seldom splits open. It is color fast and not easy to alter its shape. They are therefore the favorite of the local Tibetans, especially those made of rock cypress, and birch root, which the locals believe can detect poisons. The bowels made in the Dawangshangjielin Village Motuo are thought to be the best.

The place where the Menba People live abounds with various trees and bamboos that supply abundant materials for wood and bamboo wares. The Bangqiong, a sort of bamboo ware, is the most famous. Made of hundreds of very slim bamboo splints, Bangqiong is painted with different colors like red, black, blue and yellow. The designs on its body are primarily geometric figures. The Menba vine wares are equally famous. Additionally the locals also have such handicrafts as wax printing, spinning and paper manufacturing.
