This large, lidded basket was made by women weavers from the Iraya Mangyans, one of 12 ancient nomadic tribes with a distinct culture who live at the north end of Mindoro Island in the hills surrounding 8,500-foot-high Mount Halcon.

Lokmoy, a naturally water-resistant vine that grows high in Mindoro’s rainforests and other vines form the shape of this basket. Weavers use both sides of nito, a climbing fern, to make the design and color.

This large piece can take months to create – Mangyan people. Create your own collection and look for other Iraya baskets that we offer! Perfect in Organic, 1970s Revival, Coastal or Modern Farmhouse environments.
