Beautiful rattan baskets with lids, artisan woven in a "dainty cross" or lace pattern. Sturdy and stylish will hold a houseful of laundry or other items.
The unusual and complicated weave takes skill and time, to bend and shape the rattan for these unique baskets.
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.
