For centuries, basketry formed an essential part of all aspects of daily life in the Philippines. This covered basket, crafted of woven reed, bamboo and wood, may have been used to secure household items. Clothing and blankets, in particular, would have been kept fresh and dry in lidded containers such as this one. Once created for everyday use, this basket can still function as storage or be put on display as an example of rustic beauty and craftsmanship.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
