This 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 piece can take months to create.

Please look for the other Iraya Baskets we offer – and create your own collection.
