HAND WOVEN ON KALIMANTAN, THE THIRD LARGEST ISLAND IN THE WORLD, a traditional pack basket. This basket is finely woven with twill plaited split rattan and is dramatic visually in the use of natural and black strands of rattan to form an overall design. The woven design on this basket is of angular geometrics and a center 4 point star. The basket has a pair of matching woven straps that are looped to the rim with a braided rattan tie that circles the rim through woven loops and allows the bag to be pulled closed.

These bags have been woven for centuries and are used daily by the tribal members. The designs chosen by the makers (usually men) have to do with their daily life in one of the oldest rain forests in the world. These baskets, as in all cultures, are being replaced by plastic and other containers. If you are a basket lover, these older baskets are rapidly being collected and although there are new ones (smaller, less traditional designs, no beautiful dark patina that comes with age) being imported, the beautiful older ones are being tucked into museums and private collections. This basket was purchased in Borneo in the 1980's and has lived with us for many years.
