Vintage Polynesian Woven Flax Kete or Purse

This is a very finely woven old kete or flax purse measuring 13 1/2" long, 8 1/2' high, and virtually flat through...suitable as a clutch purse. It is definitely an older piece...probably aged around 30 years or more by look of it....split on one side seam ...just needs a few stitches to fix but not really that noticeable. A lovely old collectible piece of weaving....possibly of New Zealand Maori origins but could be from one of the Pacific Islands groups also.
