Description 
Rectangular basket woven from thin strips of lacebake from the lacebark tree. The bark is woven from long strips that are finished by being woven back to form a decorative fringe about three cm from the top edge. The handle is made from double twisted thin strips of bark fibre in a continuous length which is threaded through the basket from top to bottom on each side. The handle loops up from the basket to form two looped handles.
