That day, Bibaising is installed outside, in the sun. Sitting on the ground on a thick board, he finishes the weaving of a new doko. An old copy serves as a mold to shape his new basket.
The Doko is a traditional bamboo braided basket, used to carry almost everything: potatoes, fodder, wood to heat ….
Leaning against the back of the carrier, it is held by a wide strap « Namlo » passed on the front, the load is distributed on the back.
Illustrations of how to wear the traditionnal basket can be seen on thoses differents pages : Pokhara, les maisons des collines et Construction d’une maison au Népal (with the exemple of a doko made in wood)
