Making a double woven Cherokee basket made of common chair cane.

Double woven Cherokee baskets are not for the faint of heart! These can be difficult to learn and only mastered over time.

The Cherokee Basket photo is of a rectangular lidded double woven basket done by Eva Wolfe, made of river cane and natural dyes. She is best known for her double woven baskets she made in the 1900s. They are indeed works of art.
