The premier authority source, we specialize in important, authentic, museum-quality Wounaan Hösig Di (finest baskets) woven artwork from the Darién Rainforest of Panamá.
Hösig Di are fine hand-woven baskets by the Wounaan Indians of the Darién Rainforest of Panamá. Silk-fine strands of the local chunga palm, colored with vegetal and organic dyes, are sewn over coils of naguala palm leaves. The elaborate dying process involves first gathering roots, berries, herbs and leaves. Even river mud is used for coloration. Once the fine chunga is dyed, the weaver works with a needle to begin her basket using either silk-stitch or rib-stitch.
