The construction of furniture in Mizoram is simple and exquisite. The cane stool is exemplary of Mizo furniture. It is constructed by using two phulrua/cane rings held apart by a series of vertical mitperh/bamboo splints. A dao/bill hook knife is used to cut the cane and bamboo. The bamboo splints are tenoned into holes provided in both rings. Rawhide is stretched tight over the upper ring and held in place by the vertical rings to make the seat surface.
To make the cane rings freshly harvested cane is wrapped around cylindrical wooden posts and cured or hardened in the sun. This resourcefulness of the Mizo craftsmen to use the raw cane for its flexibility and solar energy to bend it is the most unique and interesting feature of the Mizo stool.
