"Two Story" Bamboo Hat Box


This two-level antique Asian basket was originally used to store hats. It is made from split bamboo and closely woven fiber. Each layer has a wooden base. The walls and top of the box are composed of two separate layers of weaving, which provides strength and rigidity. There are some tears in the outer layer of the top. It has brass fasteners on the sides for strength and decorative carvings.

The Chinese designed an elaborate array of wooden and woven baskets, boxes, and buckets to carry and store things. Some were styled around specific uses--picnics, carrying fish, rice, or water. Some were used for special occasions like carrying "sweets" to a wedding party or a Chinese New Year celebration.

Today, many seem whimsical but always make a great accessory. Use them to hold your keys and mail, magazines, and hand-towels.

Silk Road Collection offers many types and styles of Asian boxes, baskets and buckets.
