Auroville Bamboo Research Centre



About us

Auroville Bamboo Centre (we call it 'ABC') was established in February 2007, with the aim to incorporate the following four aspects:

  • vocational training opportunities for the unemployed youth around the villages of Auroville and transforming them into craftsmen who can produce world class Bamboo products
  • a technical and sociological research component to bring together Indian traditional craft with contemporary world culture
  • production and marketing of Bamboo craft for income generation and building stronger communities for sustainable living
  • unending research and development of Bamboo for the welfare of local and international communities


The project has many contacts in India and abroad and effectively is building a bridge between the ancient local tradition and the emerging global culture.

Your good wishes and encouragement keeps us busy bringing to you innovative bamboo products. Thank you for taking time to visit our website!
