Name: 3-Part Katu Mens Basket
The Katu ethnic group's baskets are some of the most finely and sturdily made in the region. This men's backpack basket is wove in three parts of sturdy rattan. Rattan baskets are smoked over the fire for a year, giving the rattan flexibility and bug proof qualities. These men's baskets are designed to fit closely against the body to avoid snagging while going through the jungle on hunts or other expeditions. Beautiful, and increasingly rare. For this item, actual shipping cost will be billed.
