Made in Panama
by talented artisans, supporting local communities and preserving their rich cultural heritage
Panama woven baskets are traditional handicrafts created by skilled artisans using chunga palm tree fibers native to Central America. The fibers are harvested, cleaned, dyed using natural sources, and then woven into intricate patterns using coiling and twill-weaving techniques. The baskets are constructed by forming a base and then
creating walls, resulting in a functional and beautiful art piece. The tightness of the weave and the complexity of the design demonstrate the artisan's expertise
The art of basket weaving is passed down through generations, with techniques, patterns, and designs reflecting the knowledge and experience of the artisans. The intricate geometric patterns and vibrant colors used in the baskets often carry cultural symbolism and can represent stories, legends, or aspects of the natural world.
