This is an ingenious piece of utilitarian tribal craftsmanship that is a rare work of beauty.  This style of woven back pack with precipitation repellent long grass attached is common to a number of tribal groups in Central and Eastern Arunachal.  The Tagin, Nishi, Adi and Hill Miri and even Apatani, use this style of pack.  This one is in great shape and the woven cane has evolved a fine patina.
