Abstract: A large number of tribals living in remote thick forest areas of the Aravalli hills of Mewar region depend on nature for their basic necessities of life. These people, especially belonging to primitive or aboriginal culture possess a good deal of information about properties and uses of plants. In the present paper an attempt has been made to document the precious traditional knowledge about the uses and properties of wild plants, which the aboriginals of Aravalli hills of Mewar region possess. The paper also discusses the current role of plants in the manufacture of traditional goods, and outlines some of the specialist skill, which is involved in the production of such items.
