This is a Wonderful Vintage Woven Rattan Round Basket or Box with Lid and Handles from the town of Sagada in the Luzon Cordillera range of the Philippines. This is a round basket with a lid that used for carrying meals called the akob. Traditionally, baskets are must-haves in every Ifugao household. Like their neighboring tribes throughout the Cordilleras, baskets come in various sizes and shapes and were made for different uses. A Basket is a very prized possession in their homes. For centuries, basketry formed an essential part of all aspects of daily life in this area, and the Ifugao are known for their craftsmanship in basketry. Baskets range in form and size, from portable lunch containers to woven jars. Winnowing trays, carrying baskets, and covered containers allowed people to harvest, transport, store, and serve food and crops. Basket making is gender specific among some groups, but, both Ifugao men and women engage in basket making. Baskets are made of bamboo, rattan, or a combination of the two. The most frequently utilized construction technique entails plaiting, although wickerwork, twining, or coiling are also employed. Typically in plaiting, two elements are woven over and under each other at a right angle. A marvelous addition to your collection or to display in your home.
