Native American Basket

One thread at a time

Basket weaving spans Native American cultures across the Southwest and throughout the country.

The Southwest region offered ample plant variety for weaving strong baskets, though unfortunately, preservation techniques of these original baskets was less available. The handwoven baskets were used to carry, store, and preserve goods.

Now, the tradition of basket weaving continues, though primarily decorative and ceremonial.
