Basketry is the traditional art for which Choctaw artists are most widely recognized. Early Choctaw baskets are made of split river cane and palmetto, colored with plant dyes. A wide variety of intricate forms were made and developed by ancestral Choctaw people, many of them were used for food preparation, storage/transportation, or as items of gift and exchange. When the tribe was forced to move to Oklahoma, the Choctaws couldn’t get the materials they used to use for some of their traditional artifacts, so they had to concentrate more on other crafts such as beadwork.

This double weave rivercane basket, might be considered small waste basket. The flaring rim design with walnut dyed weavers has an alternating square and diamond band pattern.

WHY WE LOVE IT: This intricate design and quality of this basket is unrivaled. The basket seems to cross design styles for us and can appeal to all aesthetics.
