This is a clothing storage basket with triple walls - inside is bamboo, then a layer of tobacco leaves to deter insects, with the outside layer of rattan for strength. The top is tied on with a hemp rope and a nut weight, and comes with a hemp and bamboo forehead strap for transporting to another house. This basket has been used gently, and is woven with a slight catywampus tilt. Beautiful, original, authentic, this could be used as a focal point in a living room corner or as a functional piece for storage.
