Weaving a charpai bed

In just seven minutes, a man expertly weaves a charpai bed, also known as a charpoy, charpaya, or manji-style bed, around a metal bed frame. The video, uploaded by chintu arya, shows the creation of a simple diagonal pattern with a flat belt material, however, the beds can also be tightly woven with rope around wood frames in a variety of colorful designs. According to The Spruce, they are traditional in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Next, more kinds of weaving, including woven bark fibre and The Big Cloth: Weaving Harris Tweed. Bonus furniture vid: The Wave Cabinet.
