Handmade in Panama by the rural Wounaan tribe, these vibrant and intricate baskets, now some of the rarest art forms across the globe, are the result of ancient weaving traditions passed through generations of the indigenous peoples of the Darién rainforest. These contemporary baskets are stitched over months, often years, and have been called ‘the finest baskets in the world’ with several hundred stitches per inch. Motif ranges from flowers to paw prints to octopus, and intricate geometric designs.
