    In one campsite I had been, they have cottages that is just a roof made of nipa (reed) and with 2 walls made of woven bamboo slats. It’s a nice shelter that looks easy to make. I inspected the wall and asked the caretaker on the details. First, the bamboo pole is cut in the desired length, maybe 2 yards then the poles are split into strips with a width of 2 inches. With a stone, the strips are flattened. Those strips are then woven by intersecting horizontally and vertically. When done, the ends are tied with rattan or any cord so the strips will remain in place. It can be hung to serve as a wall of your shelter.
