These finely woven baskets, handmade from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes by the indigenous Wounaan tribe features design themes derived from the flora and fauna of the Wounaan’s territory in the Darien region of Panama.
This tapestry-like, tightly woven ‘combed-stitch’ basket design displays a playful array of delicate blossoms, foliage and buterflies – an expression of tropical exuberance about the body of this basket. The surprise element of this woven design is the ‘mandala’ termination gracing the basket’s underside.
