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.
Traderbrock Wounaan Indian Basket from Panama #3031

Wounaan Indian Puerta Lada Plastic Wrap Basket-Panama 20100227L

$ 34.99

It is 5" tall and has a 23" circumference. The strap is 34" long so it will hang at 17".

This is another unusual basket. There was a time when the village of Puerta Lada was the only village I knew that made baskets like this. It is unusual because the fiber is wrapped in a special plastic and then the basket is painstakenly stitched together. I don't believe Puerta Lada or any village is still making them. 

The degree of difficulty and the time it took is why the artists gave it up. This is a good one for the serious basket collector. 

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

  Shipping is included within the USA.
