This sculptural basket was woven by hand in Luzon, up in the remote Philippine highlands. Baskets like these were used to store dry rice or beans. They were often hung from hooks near a family’s fireplace, and so the rattan was naturally darkened by soot and then burnished over time from use, displaying character only acquired with age.
