    This is Native American, this basket is called a Trivet. It was made by a member of the Inuit Tribe of Alaska. They used dyed sea grass to wrap around other kinds of grass to make these baskets. I collect Native American basketry and have a few of this kind of work. The "V" part is put there so the basket could be hung on the wall, which is why you see many of these baskets for sale and the V part is broken away from the basket. Not yours though :)
