Akha Woman's Basket
Name: Akha Woman's Basket

Item#: 6021

This is one of the absolutely stunning baskets woven by the Akha people of NW Laos for the women to carry their sewing and bag-making supplies or for gathering small bits of greens while working in the field. This has a tightly, beautifully woven exterior, reinforced corners, and rim of rattan, and an inside of woven bamboo. This basket has a stunning patina and is accompanied by a photo of the woman who wore it proudly showing it off in her traditional headdress, embroidered overshirt (on top of a green, western-styled T-shirt!), and traditional handspun, indigo dyed, handwoven skirt..

Size: 8 in. tall, 9 in. across bottom, 5.5-6 in. opening

Origins: Luang Nam Tha Province, Laos

Site Design: DIGI Studios
