These exquisite split chunga palm leaf and natural dyes basket work of the indigenous Wounaan of Panama feature tribal designs and other abstract design elements often related to patterns from the traditional body painting that the Wounaan still practice today.
This beauty, employing a combed stitch technique, features bold markings – multiple chevrons – in mellow earth tones. The underside features a striking mandala-like design resolution.
