THE CLASSIC SASAK ROUND BALL BASKET
Nurbaya Village
West Lombok

During the wet season the people farm - not much in baskets available at that point in time as the "adat" tradition dictates the job description for almost every individual in the community. Basket making is a cottage industry practiced during the dry season. There have always been ketak grass baskets produced in Lombok but only a cluster of villages have embraced it as a cottage industry.

Lombok now supplies almost all the baskets available in Bali and produces both styles.

"Ketak" Grass Mats

Long wearing, tightly woven, multi purpose grass mats in a variety of shapes and sizes. Rounds are available starting from "coaster size" to 1 meter (39 inches). Ovals average 20X30cm - (8X12). Square shapes are the most difficult to execute. Available sizes are "coaster to 1m square" and quantities are very limited.

Prices vary according to size and shape - square shapes are more difficult to make and average 10-20% more than their round or oval counterparts.
