  • Doko (Nepali: डोको) is a kind of basket made from bamboo. They are hand-woven with overlapping pieces of hand cut bamboos.

    Dokos are used to carry goods, vegetables, grains, water pots, etc. They are also used to carry small animals and poultry, as well as serving as temporary cages for animals. Where there are no motor roads, special oversized dokos are used to transport people unable to walk.

    Doko production has been a good source of income as well. Blind people are trained for doko production to earn their livelihood in Nepal. In almost every rural area of Nepal the doko is utilized as a common tool for carrying heavy loads.
