Intricately-woven bamboo shoulder bag. For this piece, the weaver used four different gauges of split bamboo. The careful sizing of the shoulder straps and the way in which the length may be adjusted shows the artisan's skill. The unique shape, color variation and sheer craftsmanship show the imagination that comes from this mountainous region.

This extremely hard to find one-of-a-kind piece will add interest to any décor and be a striking addition as part of a basket or purse collection. Collected in the 1960s in the Philippines.
