Art and Handicrafts of Arunachal Pradesh can fire your imagination with their beauty and style. The traditional art of creating wonderful articles from the very common material available have been passed on from generation after generation in the state. Even today the people make most of their household items own their own. Be it utensils, baskets, tables or their dresses, they know how to make it all. Different regions are famous for different craftsmanship. Some are known for designing colourful masks, wooden vessels and silver objects, some are expert in making cane and bamboo articles while others have long perfected the art of wood carving.
Weaving is the universal craft in this region as in other parts of northeast India, with beautiful and highly coloured fabrics being made largely by women. The handicrafts of the state include a wide variety in weaving, painting, pottery, basketry and wood carving. The tribals make exquisite carpets, paintings on wooden vessels and silver articles.
The Buddhist community design carpets with striking designs. Other items are horn, brass and semi precious stones.
