Tribal Designs Basket 003



Mind-boggling Tessellation Design

This is a classic, elegant oversize basket form with an extraordianry tessellated geometric composition – a flawless repetition of “stepped volutes” in pleasant earth tones.  The spectacular resulting pattern, the thin walls, plus this basket’s handsome “pot-bellied” silouette denotes weaving of the highest caliber by these highly accomplished Native basket weavers of the Darién region of Panama.

These decorative baskets handwoven by Panama’s indigenous tribe, the Wounaan, are made from split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes and feature geometric designs and other abstract design elements.
