Nishikanta
Nishikanta Das is the most experienced practitioner of this craft and has played a key role in keeping the craft alive by training a number of interested youth. He was trained by his mother. He lives with his wife in Sarta village of Paschim Medinipur who is also an expert artist. He runs a unit of 45 artisans by the name Das Mat Weaving. They make a wide range of products like table and floor mats, runners, wall hanging, Masland or Mataranchi (very fine mat) using natural fibre and natural colour. His main claim to fame is the inclusion of a wide range of colours by dyeing the sticks in Azo free dyes which make the products look bright and attractive. Nishikanta's creations were highly appreciated in international festivals held in Oman and London.
