44-year-old Lourembam Henthoingamba turned his childhood hobby of bamboo and cane crafting into a profession. A resident of Uripok Khaidem Leikai in Imphal, he took professional training and formed clusters to start his production. He owns a firm called "Lifeline Development Organization" at Naoremthong Laishram Leikai and manufactures various bamboo and cane products. The group is doing a good business with a monthly turnover of Rs. 2-3 lakh. The products are on high demand across India as well as abroad. Lourembam and his group of artisans make a variety of craft items including flowers, bags, furniture pieces, photo frames and flower vases. He currently employs over 40 artisans who work at different parts of the valley districts of the state. There are plans to expand the centre further which will help in providing employment to many more locals. The artisans, mostly women, are happy to get an opportunity to earn by utilizing their free time. The Northeastern states are known for their expertise in handicraft and these intricately designed products are high on demand. The available natural resources in the region can be utilized by local artisans to generate a good living.
