India has long used the traditional woven bed known as the charpai. Regional differences exist in Central India and the nearby nations. In Punjab, it is also referred to as manjaa, khaat, khatia, or manji. The charpai is a simplistic structure that is simple to build. Modern charpai could feature metal frames and plastic tapes instead of the traditional wooden frame and natural fiber ropes. Four sturdy vertical poles that are joined by four horizontal elements make up the frame, which enables the building to self-leveling. Cotton, date leaves, and other natural fibers can be used to create webbing.
