NamChang Handicraft Village
The tiny Lanten village of Nam Chang specializes in producing strong bamboo paper,baskets and dyed indigo cotton fabric. The villagers also make carved wooden and bamboo paper ritual masks used in their Taoist ceremonies. visitors can watch the village women grind young bamboo with sako tree leaves to a pulp, and then boil it into a paste-like solution. This is spread on framed cloth screens and left on racks in the sun to dry. papre-makers are also experimenting with dyes, as the global market is growing for this colored natural product. About 35 locals carry out the paper-making process and can churn out some 150 large sheets each month.
