Artisans of Sephu region of Bhutan are facing income crisis as the bamboo forests or the area have died years ago. Artisan use to weave high quality traditional bamboo products and barter them for their necessities but unavailability of bamboo forced them to stop weaving about few years ago. The area comes under the Wangchuck Centennial Park.
