Hammocks of Pondicherry

Hammocks are made in Auroville. This is a non-traditional craft and young people who are good with their hands and willing to learn are involved. The raw material — jute — comes from the neighbouring states.
As part of their Cottage Industry Programme, the Sri Aurobindo Society at Pondicherry has developed the art of making paper by hand. This is used to make the famous paper-lanterns of Auroville which are known all over the world.
