Thumbs up Where to buy a khatiya/charpai/khatlo?

Does anyone know of an online store that sells a desi cot, aka khatiya/charpai/khatlo, preferably with a wooden frame and cotton strings? Looking for something like these or in between:



(The second one here is a computer model)

I found a local retailer who sells the one with metal frame and nylon strings, but figured I might as well look for a more traditional/authentic type before settling for that

Thanks!

I knew this was coming

I was looking at some pictures from my trip to India. We went to one of the hotels with an outdoor setting where guests are seated in desi cots (khatla in Gujarati). I figured they would make good patio furniture, especially during summer... so took the chance and posted my question

Make your own - its not that difficult. You can get the posts and cross pieces pre-done from Home depot. If you are good with a miter saw/router you can make the joints yourself or you can give the guy at HD the specs and he will do it for you (maybe a small charge). Once the frame is put together, fitted, glued and screwed, the remaining is just to find a tape that is to your liking. You can use long canvas strips or barrier tape (similar to the ones in airport lines) and start wrapping.

You can get it all done in one weekend. Yes, I know, better to have someone else do it. But if you are into this kind of stuff, its a fun project and you will get a lot of "satisfaction" from it - in more ways than one

Re: Where to buy a khatiya/charpai/khatlo?

And when you make the khatiya at home, dont forget to put a couple of folds of thinly shaved wood between the joints. Why? Simple it will make that 'kooor kooor' sound typical of beds and chairs when they are being 'used' very much

If I have to make it myself, it probably won't be ready till next summer EC is partly to be blamed
