plaited basketwork


Explanation:
Ref.: via www.google.com
As in:
The ba' or "baby carrier," unique to central Borneo, is worn on the mother's back. The child sits inside, facing forward with its legs hanging free on either side of her body. This position allows the child to look out over its mother's shoulder or sleep with its head resting on her back. Children are carried in the ba' until about the age of two.

Most ba' consist of a plaited basketwork core overlain with beadwork appliques and have a semicircular wooden seat to support the child. Sometimes they are strengthened with decorative wooden struts, which are often carved in the form of miniature guardian figures.
