  • Takinan 4″ (Available in Various Colour)

    This miniature Takinan basket is a product of the Murut community residing in Keningau and Tenom.  It is skilfully hand-woven using strips of dried bamboo and is tied to four rattan stands using selingkawang, a type of grass.  In the olden days, a full-sized Takinan would be used by the Murut to store paddy rice.  This miniature version can be used as pen holder or to give your home an ethnic Murut touch.
