"Simply Beautiful"

The design and craftmanship of this small basket is exquisite. In fact, I find that I hate to actually put anything in it, although I sometimes do, because I hate to cover up the beauty of the piece.

"Sustainable Beauty"

This basket is very carefully crafted. I love that local materials are utilized. The inside is so beautiful with precise stitching that you may not want to cover it up with putting items inside! Go ahead - it is a joy to use everyday.

"Beautiful Gift to Handcrafters"

Gave to my mother for her 95th to hold her glasses and hearing aids at her bedside. She loved it. She used to collect old Papago baskets so she loved the weaving. Me too.
