Torrey Pine Needle Basket

Woven Basket

Woven in the traditional style of the Chumash Indians, natives to the Santa Barbara home of the artist, this basket is fashioned using the "coil and stitch" technique. It is fashioned from the dyed and natural pine needles of the Torrey Pine, a native of the coastline of southern California, and prized by basket makers for its length, thickness, and its ability to take a wide range of color.
