A light-weigh bamboo basket with stiff rattan upper lip, ribs, and bottom, this was probably woven for an adolescent due to its size. It has a bamboo and hemp forehead strap, and blackened, smoked bamboo woven in for beauty and design. This basket has seen light use as shown by the light patina on the carrying side and the rattan edges, and the small broken edge on the bamboo forehead strap.
