Sample of a finely woven mat. This kie is woven in single check from processed strips of baan ni kaina into a wide rectangular shape. Its small size suggest this kie was produced as a demonstration or a sample of weaving technique.

In the initial preparation of the baan ni kaina, when the leaves are harvested as young green leaves, they produce the golden yellow colour.

The ends of the strips have been tied off along its long sides. At one corner edge the bann ni kaina has been woven into a loop attachment. Kie
