- Item Not Available
Chinese basket intricately woven in multi-colored rattan creating a pleasing overall geometric pattern.
The Chinese designed an elaborate array of wooden and woven baskets, boxes, and buckets to carry and store things. Some were styled around specific uses--picnics, carrying fish, rice, or water. Some were used for special occasions like carrying "sweets" to a wedding party or a Chinese New Year celebration.
Today, many seem whimsical but always make a great accessory. Use them to hold your keys and mail, magazines, or hand-towels.
Silk Road Collection offers many types and styles of Asian boxes, baskets and buckets.
