Now the bamboo strips are placed on the ground to form a base that is called the ‘Toli’ in the local language. New warps are added and woven in a criss cross manner leaving small spaces in between. After the required length of the Toli, is achieved, the loose ends of the warps are interlocked to form the shape of the rhombus. We add new warps that are woven into the wefts as well as loose ends of the locked warps towards the end.
After completion of the Toli, the extra ends of the wefts are cut off. For obtaining the triangular shape of the Jakoi the equality and symmetry of both sides of the curve are measured. Once the base acquires its required shape new warps and wefts are added to the loose ends and eventually tucked into the warp ends.
Here we shall take two alternative warps and two alternative loose ends and entwine them together. The loose end of the wefts are then bent and tucked into the weave. The same process is performed on all the four sides. The extra ends are cut off.
