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 for the next 60 days. 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 durante los próximos 60 días. 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 Woven Hanging Purse Basket-Panama 20082850L

Vintage Wounaan Embera Woven Hanging Purse Basket-Panama 20082850L

$ 59.99

This woven Basket measures 5.5" tall and has a 19" circumference. It hangs at 24".  Ladies, this basket really can be used as a purse. If you want to be different this purse will do it. 

I bought this basket in the early 1990's. Back in those days I use to go to the villages with bras, panties, powder milk, cooking oil and bug spray. The road during the rainy season was so bad that the women could not travel to the city so they preferred to trade. I also took a bunch of cash because there was a store out there.  Those were the days and the women still remember it. 

Today we negociate on the Internet and I send money via Western Union. Efficient but no fun. 

Each basket is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
