While large cabinets and chests are used to store clothes of occasional wear, smaller caskets or in-built cabinets are used for everyday clothes. In the absence of such storage furniture, an alagni becomes the primary storage furniture for everyday clothes. This alagni was made by tying a rope between two khuti (wall pegs) in the corner of a room.
