Mats like gundri, jhalla, and sukul, which are commonly used in the rural areas are made of some varieties of dried wheat, paddy straw, and jute yarn. These are locally made within the households. In the terai, especially in the eastern part, muda - a variety of stool for sitting on - is made of strips of bamboo and cane. The products are crafted mainly by the women; a number of home-based women in the Jhapa district are engaged in making the muda.
