Usually baskets from this region are flat, tray-like baskets which were used to separate chaff from grain, and the deeper baskets like this one were used to measure the grain. The color comes from dyes made from roots and barks. The traditional abstract patterns are representations of everyday things, such as shields, huts, clouds, etc.The inter-laced lattice design at the base of the basket which starts the weaving is surrounded by a decorative stitch called "the dove's footprints."
