Originated from Ethiopia, these baskets were used to carry their national dish, injera bread, a sourdough-risen flat bread with a slightly spongy texture. The outer part of the basket is covered with leather while the inner part are woven beautifully with fibers. The lid is secured with a leather strap that is woven through long leather loops attached to the side of the basket, and also a strap that goes over the shoulder.
Good condition with visible signs of wear and tear. Perfect addition to your collection.
