Abstract: Helicteres isora plant is commonly known as Indian Screw Tree which can be found throughout India. It is a sub-deciduous shrub or a small tree with stem 1-2 inches in diameter and reaching a height of 5-15 ft. A study was conducted on documenting the traditional extraction process- harvesting, retting and drying of the fibre. Thin ropes made from these fibres are used for household use and thick ropes for agricultural purpose. The isora fibre has the potential for making handicraft products.
