Woolen Namda
 
Namdas are non woven felts made by hand using local sheep wool. The wool fiber is dyed in various colors and intricate designs are made. The biggest traditional use of this was in making saddle blankets. Once widely practiced, this craft slowly died out and the artisans kept reducing. Till a few years ago there was only one artisan left in Mundra who was doing this work part time. The efforts of HMCP have ensured a couple of other families have also started production of this craft. However this craft faces a problem of poor designs and very low saleability. Design input needs to be provided to these artisans so that they produce better quality products and also to diversify their product range.
