Wounaan Woven Basket: Two Tone Design
This Wounaan woven basket, in a two tone design, is hand woven made from split chunga palm leaf and colored with natural dyes by the indigenous Wounaan of Panama. Such eye-catching designs require an extremely controlled design execution.
This handsome Wounaan woven basket is woven employing the so-called ‘combed stitch’, whereby the inner coil structure is covered, or hidden, by a ‘skin’ that covers this inner structure. The design itself is a fascinating organic abstract which is hard to achieve using a strictly horizontal and vertical matrix.
