Watch| Kaen Kaem: Kashmir’s indigenous wickerwork


Keani Kaem (wickerwork) is a handicraft involving the weaving of willow reeds using hands. In Kashmir, hundreds of workers are associated with the craft and the products are being marketed across the country. The Kashmir Walla Asif Amin meets the workers in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district to record the processing of wicker and manufacturing of different items such as baskets and furniture

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
