Werregue Basket


$ 75.00




A rare find! The Werregue Basket. Very intricately hand woven by the Waunana Indians in Northern Colombia. These baskets were woven from fibers of the Werregue Palm, using a spiral tightly woven technique and were originally produced to be used by the Waunana women as vessels to carry water from the river. The original white fiber of the Werregue palm is combined with fibers naturally dyed with pigment from Annatto seeds and the juice of the Jagua fruit. This basket measures approx. 9 inches high, by 7 inches wide. A very special basket indeed!
