Making rice baskets or “kathip khao”, is an economic activity that adds to the income of village families across Laos. Sticky rice “khao niao” is traditionally served in these pretty woven baskets whose size can vary from a small individual basket to huge baskets used by the vendors of sticky rice in markets and along roadsides.
The sophisticated weaving technique requires patience and know-how and can take hours. The craftsman begins by cutting long rattan leaves that must be soaked in water. Bamboo slats are used to create a frame to support the rattan and the rice basket's lid. Then start the rattan's meticulous braiding, folding, and sewing to finish the rice baskets.
