Beautiful tribal hunters bag, IFUGAO tribe, Luzon, Philippines, new
Phenomenal craftsmanship. rarely seen these days in the IFUGAO tribe. This hunters bag, carried as a backpack, I have collected in situ near Banau, the centre of the fantastic rice fields. The new generation is focusing on totally different things... Wonderful wicker, fully organic bag. Previously, I have had a few older pieces that had been used to store caught animals during hunting. The covering is made of layers of some sort of reed, keeping the inside dry. An authentic, tribal object, new and therefore also in new condition! Lovely piece!
