In Ilocos, the kuribot is a native basket weaved from bamboo in different sizes with a handle on one side and carried over the shoulder. The underbelly of the bamboo is usually used because it’s more flexible (to meet the demands of weaving) while it provides the same strength that the outer skin may do.

The kuribot is an all-purpose, heavy duty basket with infinite use and boundless possibilities. Mostly, it is used by farmers to carry their harvests or weeds to feed their animals. It can also be used as storage for anything or even a waste basket.
My nephew, Chanz, has a small kuribot made for him to store his toys and it’s very useful and handy. During playtime, he pulls his kuribot, take out his toys and after playtime, he shoots his toys to his kuribot, and bwoala! – the place in clean in seconds! No stress! 🙂
