Local villagers harvest the balls which are delivered to the factory in Hazyview

Once the skin is removed the balls are dried for nearly 12 month

Once dried they are sorted into bags and delivered to workshop in white river

After almost a year, local artists decorate the balls no two balls are alike

the balls are then made into different products with different finishes
