Craft and Technology

   After corn harvest, when people are corn husking, the appropriate leafs are selected for further use. The corn husk are sorted, dried at sun heat and placed in dried spaces to avoid mildewing. Before shaping it, the corn husk is moisturized in warm water.

   Some products require a wood or metal mold so they can get the desired form. The spinning corn husks are fixed to the mold, then the weaving is made following the desired pattern. Ornamental objects don’t require a mold. The moisturized corn husk takes different forms depending on the craftsman’s expertise, imagination and talent.

   The corn husk may bare their natural color or can be painted with chemical or natural pigments like nutshell or onion.
