Creating a Basket

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
