The Woven Basket


The woven basket, or "anyaman" in our local language, is a favourite craft traditionally used to produce a variety of handy items. Leaves are inter-crossed and wound to make a holder or container of some sort. We've found it to have a wonderful personality, with the use of metal or aluminium "leaves", for use as a surface on custom-made furniture. The possibilities are endless.
