This smoky brown carrying basket originates from southeast Asia and is expertly crafted of thin strips of smoked bamboo. Carefully hand-woven in a plain weave with a band of exposed warp, the basket wonderfully showcases the artisan's mastery of their craft. The basket has a tapered form that swells at the base and narrows to a rounded opening that resembles a coin pouch with a latch handle. The edges are reinforced with bent reeds and the bottom is secured to a rectangular wooden base. Thin ropes made from twisted plant fibers run through small loops on the sides for use as a handle or shoulder straps. Framing the clean lines of the basket is a flat-oval reed detailing and twisted ropes to be used as a handle. Used for carrying goods or general storage, the basket is a work of art in itself and a beautiful example of a traditional craft.

“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.”
