"Ketak" Grass Basket
3.75" X 3.5
Beautifully executed and a joy to hold, the round ball coil basket is a traditional tribal classic.
During the rainy season the people farm. Rice is the traditional staple crop and the structure of the village revolves around it's production. That "adat" responsibility takes precedence over basket weaving which is vigorously practised in the dry season.
"Ketak" is the name of the type of grass used in this basket. I have ketak baskets in the office that are over 100 years old - this is a very durable material. The grass grows wild in the transitional zone between "sawah" rice fields and forest. The bundles are sorted by diameter and size, soaked, split and cried. One of the determining factors in the price of a basket is the number of "splits" the grass was divided into. This is a 3 split basket.
I am happy to combine shipments for you. The final shipping cost is determined by the combined weight of the goods.
