Alaskan Baskets  Native Tribes from across America are known for their beautiful basketry. Alaska is no exception. Using materials readily available and unique to their environment, Native Artisans create stunning works of woven art. The baskets in our collection are chosen for their quality and workmanship, and any of them will make a fine addition to your home decor.
Native artisans weave baskets by hand as they have for centuries. Basket weave, design, shape and coloring may vary from basket to basket as each is made by hand and nature.
Looking for a one-of-a-kind basket, a special design we may have it or one of our basket weavers will be more than happy to personally design a basket for you.
Contact us for details, we will be pleased to assist you.

Alaskan Ivolry Spirit Wheel

Flat Basket Spirit Mask

Hand woven flat grass basket, natural dyes are based on tribal colors. Wood hand carved pirit mask is the center piece of this unique design, adorned with a bone carved bear paw. Alaskan fox and beaver furs frame the spirit mask. Masks were carved, decorated and painted, ingenious theatrical devices were created and hung from the roof, and beautiful clothing was sewn, all as part of a complex spiritual life which honored the beings that made life possible in the Arctic environment. The masks were used for many ceremonial purposes; they were said to have made the unseen world visible. It is impossible to know the specific meanings behind any type of mask, as the meaning was personal to the mask's creator and related to the story he or she wished to tell. Similar looking masks could portray stories with very different meanings. Here Alaska's history is sure to become a treasured part of your home! An excellent gift for the discriminating Alaskan fine arts buyer who appreciates Native art, an collectable piece for that someone "who has everything".
