Basketry

Since ancient times, baskets have been used initially for utilitarian purposes and later for decorative value. The weaving of them is as old as the history of civilization. Fragments of basketry have been found in Egyptian tombs and pyramid excavations. Made from a minimal amount of raw resources such as grasses, trees and other natural fibers, baskets display early primitive mans ingenuity at it's peak.

Baskets and other utilitarian forms of basketry have been a mainstay of our collection since its beginning in 1970. All of our baskets were made by the local indigenous peoples of Africa, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The collection consists of new, used, vintage, old and in some cases antique specimens. Many are made in quantities and some are unique one of kind examples woven by craftsmen and artists in their native homelands.
