Charpai !!!

Charpai !!!
The picture above is taken automatically from, if there is something related to the picture please visit and contact
The traditional handwoven bed from Pakistan is known by many names. It can be referred to as khatt, manja or manji; as well as variations of a term that literally means “four-footed”: charpoy, charpaya, and charpai ( Urdu: چارپائی). As the name indicates, one of the two main components of the charpai is a four-footed frame; which supports a handwoven net made of rope or belts of fabric. Due to the prevalence of rope variants, the charpai is also sometimes referred to as a rope bed.

The frame is usually made of lightweight wood, such as mango; although modern interpretations of the charpai may use metal frames. The rope or fabric is usually made of natural materials, as well: cotton, jute, coir (coconut fiber) and even dried leaves, such as those from date palms. Along with the current and non-traditional prevalence of metal frames in charpai designs is the use of synthetic weaving material, particularly nylon.
