The craft the Cherokee people are most frequently known for throughout the world is basket weaving. This ancient tradition, passed down for generations, has now become a unique and exciting Native American art form. Baskets have been an integral part of Cherokee culture for thousands of years and are now a proud part of their prehistoric and modern history.
The names of many ancient basket-weaving patterns have been lost over time, but in the last century, weaving patterns have been named for the weave itself such as “over-two, under-two.” There are two common methods of Cherokee weaving: single weave and double weave. A double-weave basket refers to a basket with two layers, one inside the other. Weaves were chosen based on the purpose of the basket. Our basket weave inspired chest highlights the intricate and artistic basket weave designs created.
