TRADERBROCK - Welcome to the Rainforest

Dear Customer,
Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets until the crisis is over. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.

Estimado cliente,
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas hasta que termine la crisis. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
Vintage Wounaan Embera Oblong Woven Basket-Panama 20071305L

Vintage Wounaan Embera Oblong Woven Basket-Panama 20071305L

$ 59.99

This woven Basket measures 5.5" tall and has a 20" circumference.

I bought this basket in the early 1990's and it looked old then. The design is unusual an extensive for a Wounaan or Embera basket. One feature worth mentioning is that this basket has a color we rarely see. It is the light green near the top. 99% of the dyes the basket artists use are natural. But once in a while they get really creative. The green comes from boiling the mosquito coils they burn to run the pests off.

I get this image of a basket weaver sitting there with her eye on this smoldering mosquito coil. She is thinking...I like that green color.

All our baskets are one-of-a-kind treasures.

Shipping is included within the USA
