Link to this object

This coiled basket with its rectangular base and flaring sides was a design usually reserved for work baskets. The coiling technique was often used to create baskets with geometric designs. Coiling begins at the center of a basket’s base and grows upon itself in rounds, each attached to the round before. The colored details are applied over the coiled core by folding a strip of grass, bark, or other fiber accordion-style under each sewing stitch on the outer surface of the basket and fastening it securely.
[Gallery label text, 2009]

Provenance
