Sital means cool in Bengali while Pati means mat. These mats are made from locally grown soft green cane slips split into fine strands lengthwise. Sitalpati is integrally linked with Bengali lifestyle. There are more than 4000 crafts persons in Ghughumari area of Cooch Behar district, who earn their livelihood from weaving Sitalpati. Widening the range, the craft persons today also make different designer utility products. The Government of West Bengal, in partnership with UNESCO, has taken up an initiative to develop Rural Craft Hub at Ghughumari. Photograph enclosed.
