No it's actually not what you think!:D

There is a scene in the movie The Ghost and The Darkness where Val Kilmer and friends are sitting by a campfire having a few drinks. On the table is a really awesome liquor bottle wrapped in woven wicker, rattan, or some sort similar material. I'd like to know if there is a specific name for this, and if anyone knows where to find bottles with this outer weave. I've always know it as cane, and the process as caning - different from rattan or wicker which is usually round, not flat.

Below is a photo of some modern cologne wrapped in the same pattern and of the same material.

Any suggestions? I've tried all sorts of internet searches but must be missing something.

I think J. Peterman sold a bottle like that many years ago.

I like this (http://www.palmspringslife.com/media/Palm-Springs-Life/Home/May-2007/In-Store-The-Outsiders/)better. Scroll down the page. This (http://www.worldmarket.com/kitchen-tabletop/Wine-Racks--Accessories/wine-racks/lev/4/productId/6597/PIPELINE_SESSION_ID/a79f0584c0a85b654d459b9636f9f6b4/index.pro?PIPELINE_SESSION_ID=a79f0584c0a85b654d45 9b9636f9f6b4)isn't too bad either.

For larger style of bottles, trying looking under the keywords: Demi-john or Demijohn.
