Backpack basket, or "seio-kago," woven from cypress bark ("hinoki"), originally collected in 1929 for the Attic Museum. The dealer Sunagawa-san said that it was from another dealer in Hotaka in northern Nagano Prefecture. It is knitted in the simplest "ichimatsu" design. Two "loops" made of a weft spanning 3 warps are in the third row of wefts from the rim.
