Warao Indian Baskets( Delta del Orinoco, Venezuela) ECO FRIENDLY
The basketry of the Warao natives of Venezuelan who live along the Orinoco River is superior to anything else. The baskets are woven using centuries-old skills handed down from generation to generation. . The entire family contributes to the work on the baskets.
Processing of fibers is time consuming and hard work. The leaves are cut from the Moriche palm tree, dried for several weeks, than crushed into fine fibers, boiled and dried in the sun. After using their hands and legs, the fibers are twisted into very fine threads and then they wrap the fibers around a coil of a palm branch. This technique offers us some of the strongest and tightest weaves available being some of the finest in the world today.
