English term or phrase: wood–and–string bed
na zalost nemam kontekst. Da li je to samo krevet od drveta i zica, ili nesto drugo? Hvala

Reference: charpoy /charpai is a traditional string framed bed

Reference information:
Ukoliko se radi o nameštaju, moguće je da se radi o nekom "srodniku". U tom slučaju bi eventualno neutralni i prilično rogobatni prevod mogao biti pleteni ležaj sa drvenim ramom i nogama. Problem je i u tome što "pleteni nameštaj" u Srbiji obično označava nameštaj od pruća, ratana i slično, a pletena ležaljka nas gotovo isključivo asocira na viseću ležaljku.
