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.
