A small village named Naini in Uttar Pradesh state is the chief producer of Moonj wild grass product. Moonj and Kaasa are the types of wild grass that abundantly grows near the banks of the river. The source of Moonj craft has nearly 60 to 70 years of customary history in Allahabad. At first the Kaasa grass is dried and it is wrapped with the moonj grass by rolling around Kaasa. The motifs of basketry are made by adding colored grass in between. The Moonj grass products are ideal to use regularly . These natural products can be used as containers, food storage container and wall decorators. The products are very simple, beautiful and eco-friendly. The Moonj craft also has a customary significance as the finishing products are given as gifts for women in customary functions and weddings.

Natural products such as grass are meant for hardy use and products such as baskets, have for ever been used in daily lives by the poor and the rich. These can be exposed to moisture, water and sun but must always be dried well and then keep free of dust and grime. The colours will always transform or fade when exposed to the elects and that is a great part of the charm of natural products
