This khaat was gifted to the daughter-in-law by her parents during her wedding. It had lathe turned wooden legs and a rectangular frame. The webbing was woven using colourful cotton ropes with intricate geometric patterns. This charpoy had two sets of maahi instead of one, with another set of ropes tied between the two maahi to transfer the tension from the paandh to the webbing.
