This is a bamboo tool worn over the arm to protect the arm and the wrist when weeding rice paddies in the summer. It securely fastens the cuffs of the sleeves. Both ends of the bamboo pieces are drilled with holes to connect them in a circle. The wrist is covered using a sleeve of connected bamboo strips, while the fingers were protected with bamboo thimbles cut diagonally from bamboo stems.
