The Modern Day "Kulambo"!
This is my modern day "kulambo" (mosquito net)
I asked a Khmer friend of mine to buy it at Penh. She bought it for $16. This is actually a Thailand made product. It's nice to note how our traditional Philippine "kulambo" had evolved into something cute and stylish. :) I don't remember to have used it before or maybe if I did, I cannot remember (lol!) but seeing it from relatives and neighbors houses, my idea of a "kulambo" is that it is a very simple rectangular net from which each corner comes with a string attached into it to be tied up everywhere possible inside the bedroom solely for the purpose of protecting against mosquitoes. During day time, it would be folded and stored and re install again during night time.
But the modern day "kulambo", cute and stylish as it is...also serves for decorative purposes. It's colorful design makes it an attractive sight inside the girl's bedroom. You can choose a color to match your walls, curtains or bed sheets. It would be good for your daughter's rooms too. :)
