It is an Exclusive GI from Tamil Nadu

One of the distinctive handicrafts of Tamil Nadu, this is a handwoven grass mat wall hanging unique to a town called Pattamadai (Pathamadai) in Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. Artisans meticulously hand-weave this mat that lends an exceptional appeal to it. More commonly known as ‘Korai Mat’ (‘paai’ in Tamil; ‘chatai’ in Hindi), its base material is Korai Grass that grows mainly along riverbeds. The mat-making technique is intricate and elaborate that involves drying, soaking, splitting and dyeing the grass strands. Traditionally these mats were used for sitting, chatting and sleeping; to stay in sync with changing tastes and needs, the artisans are now transforming these mats into beautiful wall hangings, table runners, tea mats.
