  • The Makah Native people are located at the Olympic Peninsula. The Makah people developed a basket trinket business in the 1860s. These baskets can be dated by the materials and techniques used. The rim and the center are twined which indicates this is an early piece around 1910 or earlier. These baskets were still using traditional methods and materials. The warp and weft are made out of cedar bark that is woven with beargrass. A unique basket to add to your collection.
