Hi! I am Pranabes Das. I was born on June 20, 1972, in the village Ghole Tungur in West Bengal. I am a grass mat artist. This is our traditional art. I am doing this craft for the past 35 years. I won the state award for my work in 2004.
I have participated in exhibitions and trade fairs held in various cities like Karnal, Dehradun, Delhi, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Mysore, Chennai, Udaipur, Jaipur, and Cochin. I have also participated in the World Trade Center Exhibition and the Kala Ghoda Festival in Mumbai. I went to Scotland to showcase my work in 2002.
Now I have created a group of 35 members to learn and do this craft.
