No matter who your ancestors were - they made baskets. People from all over the world wove the natural materials available to them into containers for storage, carrying, cooking, and an endless number of other uses. We are still making baskets with the same techniques as our forefathers. It's basic, simple, and inexpensive.

There is something about basketry that help us process life. Maybe it's the ancient weave. It's been around since the dawn of man. Maybe it's going round and round, like the cycles of our life. You tie your base together, break-down, upsett, twine and wale. Whatever it is, I know it works. Basketry, along with many other crafts, can give us the time to sort out our lives - thus, making it richer, no matter where we are.
