Pacific Northwest Baskets
Hand Woven Cedar Bark, Grass Woven Baskets
Cedar bark basket weaving is a skill that has been passed down through untold generations of the Pacific Northwest Coastal peoples. Red cedar trees are partially stripped of some of their bark and only the inner bark is used for weaving. The cedar bark is soaked in water until it is soft and it is cut into strips. The cedar strips are woven and then held in place by twining with narrow strips of rafia or thinner cedar bark.
