1. CustomsHandicraft(Material Noun-Neuter) a wicker hat used as an umbrella or sun-shade. This traditional headgear (japi) is made of strips of bamboo and a special kind of dried palm leaves locally known as ‘tokow-pat’. The manufacture of ordinary ‘japi’ does not require any special skill. First of all, the selected bamboos are split into small strips of required sizes. Then the strips are woven in open hexagonal design into a circular disc with a dome in the centre for the head to fit in, putting a few dried ‘tokow’ leaves (previously cut into required sizes) in between two such discs and finally sewing them securely with yarn and fine strands of cane. Thus, the manufacture of ordinary ‘japi’ is completed. বাঁহৰ কাঠীৰে সাজি টকৌ-পাতেৰে ছোৱা এবিধ মাজত টুপ থকা ঘূৰণীয়া ছত্ৰ [ই কেইবাপ্ৰকাৰৰ যেনে-ডাং-জাপি, বৰজাপি, পানী বা হালোৱা-জাপি, সৰুদৈয়া জাপি৷]
