This selection of basket-ware is produced in the rural villages of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. These are lovingly produced out of woven strapping, a type of plastic that is pliable and yet sturdy. The bag is lovingly known as 'durian strapping' for its rough and pointy textute resembles the king of fruit 'Durian'!
The unique one-of-a-kind handmade tassel gives it a personal touch. These bags make wonderful decorative or functional items.
Plastic strapping is the modern substitute as it is durable, and you can simply rinse your bags and leave them to dry.
