How They're Made

The intricate designs and craftsmanship of these products are made through generations of tradition, passed down from mothers to daughters for centuries. A high-quality basket begins with locally sourced materials accessible to the weavers. First steps involve a labor-intensive process during which weavers work to break down fibers to a workable form, wash them and add natural dyes. Then the weaving process begins!
