Several products are made out of the different parts of the palm tree. Palmyra fibres and leaves are braided in various patterns to make baskets. Mats and baskets are also woven from the stem of the date palm. he tender palm leaves are separated from the strips and joined together by winding a running strip over them. This is then folded like a ribbon and fastened by a thin strip of leaf to connect the layers at intervals, thus yielding a uniform and rhythmic pattern with soft colours and a fine texture. The products made include suitcases, boxes, bags, baskets, screens, chiks, mats, glass holders, and vases.
