PAPUA NEW GUINEA hand woven market basket or beach bag. Located in the South Pacific, PNG is a vibrant and colorful island. Color surrounds you the minute you head to the ocean or highlands. Birds, flowers, butterflys (more species than any where else on earth), plants, an exciting underwater world and wonderful people whose culture is alive and well! The women make bags like this to take their items to market or to carry their items after they have gone to market. They use native grasses and cane, some natural dyes are still used, but now that commercial dyes are readily available their life is much easier. The basket features woven loops where you can tie items on the outside. Strong braided handles, and plenty of room for whatever you wish to carry. There are some loops around the top of the bag if you wish to pull a cord through.

CIRCA: Collected in PNG in the early 1980's, been in our collection.
