Three assorted vintage intricately woven split bamboo fish traps (Gubu). They were used for catching small fish in the rice paddies and their loops could then be tied to the back of the user’s hip.  

Due to their age, condition, scarcity, unique shape, and amazing dark brown colored patina - they are perfect for a serious collector and will add interest to any décor. Purchased in the 1960s in the Philippines – and have been part of a designer’s collection. Use in a variety of interior spaces from Japandi, to Rustic, or Organic Modern.
