The Haida people live on the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) in British Columbia as well as on Dall and Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. They make twined spruce root baskets and hats. The baskets have a plain cylindrical shape decorated with horizontal bands of darkly dyed wefts. Old Haida baskets are generally not decorated with false embroidery, but Haida weavers today often incorporate false embroidery in the Tlingit style. Haida hats represent the best of Haida basketry, with designs woven into the flairing brim by techniques of three-strand twining, skip-stitch, and braiding.
Sorry, this is not the design motif used on your basket.
Please look again and make another selection.
