About the craft :
This style of Rattan weaving originated from the Dayak tribe in the jungles of Borneo, where it became the main textile produced and used in the area. The baskets and bags were used every-day for practical activities like fishing and gathering fruit. The imagery woven into the bags tells stories and symbols of the connection the people had to the environment. Prosperous plants and respected animals were among some examples of woven motifs.
