Chakati

November 17, 2016

It is a small mat locally made in the Nepalese villages. Chakati is made from dried leaves of the corn cob. People take out the dried leave and leave into the water soak to make it strong enough which last long. The dried leaves are separated into long strip pieces and locals use their own techniques to connect each other to build up the mat in a different size, shapes, and height.

Still, in the rural villages or even Bhaktapur can be found Chakati that made either from Makaiko Khosta or dried wheat long strip plants. 

 

Your suggestion here please :)
