This is both the generic term for basket and the specific term for a small basket, usually of bark, suitable for carrying in hand e.g. while collecting berries. In contrast to a tl'ust̲s̲'ai, which is wide and shallow, a tilh is comparatively narrow and deep. When collecting berries, a tilh will normally be emptied into a chalhyal, a larger basket of the same basic shape.
