Rattan Basket/"Selabit Rutan"-Kayan/Kenyah

Hi..i`m back with new handicraft to show with you all.
This is rattan bag, also known as "Selabit"-Kenyah language. Handmade rattan bag..time consuming to do 1 rattan bag, 1 week (estimation) or less. Type of rattan they used was "rutan sega"..can be found near to riverbank. I have some in my house and used it when i`m going to jungle. Just load your stuff into the rattan bag, all you need to to is to cover up the stuff with plastic..etc. By the way, hard to find it at Kuching..

Bakatu meh kena orang ulu ba menua ulu baram ditu. Nyamai amai dikena enti bisi mai utai ti besai, ngambika chunto baka jelu babas, padi, ngau barang ti bukai meh. Keterubah aku masuk ke dalam hutan, bebai ka bagpack tang enda entu nyamai berbanding ngau selabit tu. Mina engkah bagpack nya dalam selabit. Retinya mikul bagpack ngena selabit. Terus terang aku madah..nyamai dikena.
