Wedding Baskets

Vintage traditional Wedding Basket displays the original pattern that is still used today in healing, as well as, matrimonial ceremonies. Natural and dyed sumac create the image while securing the willow rod foundation. About 4" as party favor or to hold the rings at the ceremony. Maybe used as a  centerpiece or decoration at a wedding. Palm, yucca and sotol leaves are dried and then dyed in natural pigments before hand woven. 

The Tarahumara are the native people who inhabit the Copper Canyon region of Chihuahua Mexico in the Sierra Madre range. Basket weaving and split leaves dyeing tradition has been passed down mainly from mother to daughter for over 300 years. Working principally with the natural resources at hand, The Tarahumara women weave baskets using needles from the Apache Pine Tree and the split leaves of the Sotol Cactus. Using a double weave technique, these baskets are durable and will last a lifetime. Tarahumara and Raramuri indigenous inhabitants of the Copper Canyon weave from leaves and pine needles for daily use as bowls, containers, plates and baskets. Ceremonial baskets such as wedding baskets are also made as symbols of celebration of the couple's lives. Representing the mountains, streams, canyons and trees amongst other geography and topography of the natural surroundings of the union of the two souls and the merging of their spiritual lives and the mixing of the bloods through family.
