The Charpoi Candle Stands are made of the legs of the Charpoi daybed. The Charpoy bed is the traditional sleeping surface of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Char means 4 in Hindi so it basically a bed with four legs. The bed itself is elegantly simple in its design. Four wooden legs support an open rectangular structure that is filled in with a tightly woven network of ropes or chords. In Pakistan the ropes are often made of jute, in other areas the bindings are for example made of coir, a fibre taken from coconut husks. The makers of the charpoy bed create beautiful designs and patterns in the weave. The candle stands are made from the legs of old broken beds. Because of the pin in the leg, it can easily hold a candle.
