Traditional straw items, Sehwan Sharif

I really like these traditional items made in various parts of Sindh province. In this case they are the daily use items like plates, covers, tops, decorative pieces for walls, etc. They are earthly, which means they are environment friendly; they are made from hand thus employing lots of females in the process; and they are cultural icons for Sindh, just like blue tiles from Hala or ajrak from central Sindh are.
