For generations, Cherokee basket weavers have merged their creativity with everyday needs. The most intricate Cherokee baskets such as this one are made from river cane, which is woven in both single and double layer designs. The whole process of making a basket, from finding good materials to weaving a complex geometric design takes skill, concentration and a great deal of time. River-cane was once one of the most abundant plants in the southeast. It formed impenetrable forests growing along the region’s riverbanks.
