A Thread-like fiber material, harvested from the new shoots of the Chunga Palm, was used to create the outstanding minute weave above.
Finest weave in the world. Their intricate and minute motifs are varied geometric patterns. Baskets are woven with a needle and can be compared to a textile, so minuscule is the weave.
The colors are obtained from natural vegetal dyes: roots, berries, herbs, leaves and even silt-fine mud. Master weavers have refined the silk-stitch or rib-stitch technique, working 60-90 or more thread-fine strands of chunga per inch in a extremely detailed and tedious tight stitching, and creating masterpieces that resemble a fine tapestry. Basket designs are a work of art so complex and intertwined that keeping the stitch-by-stitch in check is a difficult task that takes a tremendous amount of time. Some baskets can take up to 3 years to complete as a result.
