A really gorgeous, gotta have basket. This is a boutique basket with a unique weave.
Natural rattan has been closely woven to an oval base, then the spokes are openly woven to gently twist and taper anti-clockwise until they reach the top. Two sturdy handles.
Kubu is a technique where the harvested rattan is submerged in a pond of mud and leaves for about four weeks - before weaving the baskets. It is a natural treatment against woodworm and other bugs and the rattan changes colour to an earthy pale grey.
