~ OUR MISSION ~

At Rainforest Baskets our team brings beautiful handmade woven art to your space. We specialize in contemporary tribal art.

FLORAL & PICTORIAL BASKETS

Pictorial motifs on baskets are called “natura” and often include local flowers, trees, birds, and other flora and fauna native to the weavers indigenous lands.

GEOMETRIC DESIGNS

Geometric, or “cultural” motifs draw their inspiration from multiple sources, including pre-Colombian textiles, ceramics and rock art.

Woven Animal Masks

EMBERA WOVEN SHAMAN MASKS

Emberá shamans (called jaibaná) use figures and visages to be used in their healing and home cleansing ceremonies.

Where we collect from

We commission and hand select woven art from the Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama and Colombia, and Frafa weavers in Bolgatanga, Ghana
