Would you like to know how this basket was made? First the Abaca is dried before forming them into ropes, which are then dyed to a desired color. Then dried again. Once dry, the basked weaver weaves it using a mold. One senior basket weaver can make 3 baskets in 8 hours. Then the now formed basket is dipped into a glue solution to make it hard. And lastly, its dried out in the sun. When it rains, production slows down.
Care instructions: Vacuum on low suction to prevent build-up of dust. Blot-up spills with clean cloth immediately to avoid stains. Do not place under direct sunlight to prevent discoloration.
