For the finest variety, the reed in split into nearly 100 pieces. It is then soaked in running water of the river for 3 to 7 days, after which the grass strips are kept in a water dye solution. Then the mats are woven on a loom with a cotton wrap, which the medium – quality is woven with cotton thread in the west. Due end of this wet grass is inserted in a hole of a long fine stick, which can be compared to a huge needle, with the help of the stick, the grass is passed into the loom. Afterwards the stick and the grass is held on both sides by both hands and slightly twisted to give uniform roundness and strength. Then the reed is placed against it several times to keep it in position. After the weaving is complete, the mat is compressed to eliminate any unevenness, a process that takes at least four hours.
