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.
Wounaan Vintage Woven Hanging Oval Basket-Panama  20092030L

Wounaan Vintage Woven Hanging Oval Basket-Panama 20092030L

$ 29.99

This basket measures 5.5" in length, 3.0" wide, 3.5" tall. It hangs at 21".

I bought this purse basket in the 1990's. Those were exciting days. My missionary friends told me to bring panties, bras, powder milk, cooking oil and bug spray along with cash. Oh yeah, and diapers. We would set up in the village and the artists brought their baskets. It was barter time but not until I explained in Spanish what we would do and then it was translated into Wounaan or Embera. Smiles appeared everywhere. Before it was over the men were bring their fishing spears, bow and arrows and believe it or not...  blow guns. I had a lot of fun. 

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

Shipping is included within the USA.
