For generations, Cherokee basket weavers have merged their creativity with everyday needs. The most intricate Cherokee baskets are made from river cane, which can be woven in both single and double layer designs. Cherokee basket makers also use materials such as white oak and honeysuckle to execute their distinctive basketry traditions. The whole process of making a basket, from finding good materials to weaving a complex geometric design, takes skill, concentration and a great deal of time. We feature the works of celebrated basket weavers Emma Garrett, Lucille Lossiah and Ramona Lossie.
