With water being scarce in the region, ways to store it have manifested into diverse types of water storage furniture. Ghaduchi which literally translates to ‘for a pot’, is a water pitcher stand. A typical design of a ghaduchi is a trestle structure, that comprises a horizontal surface supported on four legs that splay outwards.
