Native American Hopi Made Sifter Basket with Butterfly

Hopi Made Sifter Basket with Butterfly

Primary it is the women on all three mesas that make plaited sifter baskets. These baskets are made by plaiting yucca fibers, either natural or dyes, to achieve many designs. Many of the Hopi wickers, coils, and sifters are used for social or ceremonial purposes. This basket is unusual because a young man made it and he wove a butterfly in the center. It is his first attempt and we could not pass it up.

The Native American Indian Artists use only genuine feathers, furs, bones, beads, leather, wood, stone, etc. in the making of each work of art. There is nothing artificial used unless it is required by law. No parts of animals such as bones, feathers, etc. are from any animals considered endangered. The feathers used are from Wild Turkeys.

The colors of feathers, fur, leather, beads and patterns can vary. All of our items are individually made by hand and are uniquely one of a kind. Therefore what you see on these pages is merely a representation of the product you will receive.
