Since wire baskets are woven by many men due to the difficult nature of weaving wire, they are able to stay home on their tribal lands instead of moving to cities to look for work. In the rural groups we work with, the family units are preserved so that the weavers and their families can live more traditional lifestyles.
These baskets are unusual because they are woven from the top down, rather than from the bottom up.
I just managed to pick up the box yesterday and ... wow, I was so impressed by these beautiful baskets. Thank you so much for 'handpicking' the colors and patterns. I really appreciate your special service!
Your latest shipment of baskets was the most beautiful ever!
