A charpai is a commonly used Indian string cot, and while typically, nylon strings are to make them, Siddharth Hirwani’s version uses recycled strips of denim. First, 3-inch strips are cut and stitched together to make a roll of flat strip, which is then used to weave the central bed portion of the charpai on which a quilt or thin mattress can be spread out.

    I always prefer to see an actual made project rather than just a computer mock-up. It might be a good idea conceptually, but challenges inevitably arise in realizing any project using the materials intended, and it’s important to see the designer face these challenges. Great idea, will it work?
