Vintage, Old Store Stock. 1980s Hand-woven Designer Coiled Wall Basket.

This is a beautiful hand-woven and crafted coiled wall basket with coconut fiber leaves and natural fiber grasses. Includes 5 clay beads. Handmade for Shafford Co. in the Philippines in 1989. A very unusual half wall basket made of natural dyed rose colored fiber.

The basket is a coil design with the fiber wrapped around each coil which makes up the basket. It is accented with a decorative braid of fibers cascading down the front of the coil basket with two tone palm frond leaves at the top and 4 clay beads for embellishment. This attractive basket will brighten any wall or shelf. A beautiful display basket.

Measurement: ABT 12 inch wide at flat back. From back to front 8 inch width at opening. 17 1/8 inch to handle height; 6 1/2 inches deep.

Reed, oak, hickory splits, cedar, willows, cattail, sweetgrass, and ash are common basket weaving materials.  Coiled baskets are made with rushes and grasses. A bunch is stitched in a spiral oval or round shape. Plaiting uses those materials that are ribbon like and wide, like yucca or palms.

Rattan is a naturally renewable palm that grows in the tropical regions of Africa and Asia and is used for furniture, handicrafts and building material, among other uses.

Philippines baskets are constructed from bamboo and rattan and often a combination of the two. Plaiting and twining produces a wide range of sizes and forms. Filipinos use baskets for transportation and farm work, food service and storage, fishing and trapping, clothing, and to carry personal items.
