Vintage Orang Lombok Basket
11.5" High x 4" Diameter
This handwoven coiled rattan piece is made of rattan, a wild palm vine, known for its idurability. The tough, inner core of the vine is coiled to form the main superstructure of a basket, while the outer skin is peeled off in fine, flexible strips for weaving the covering coils of the basket together. It is a common practice in Lombnok to combine the coiled basket weaving with hand carved wood figures or creatures. Here we have a man, orang.
A charming place to store your treasures.
