Decorated by weaving grass (purple-aniline dyed) in stripes that circle the basket in two rows of purple, two rows of undyed, two rows of purple at the top and near the bottom of the basket and on the lid. The outside is very faded but the color is still bright on inside. The bottom center of the basket has a 5.0 cm long by 2.5 cm wide rectangle of wider, darker material surrounded by weaving of the same material.
