Woven Mattress / Charpai bed

We have created a woven mattress, inspired by traditional Indian charpai beds. You sleep directly on the suspended woven surface with no need for a mattress. We used rope and recycled kite fabric to weave ours – on Mars these are items that could be salvaged and re-used from the rocket.
