Baskets are a craft that we have chosen. The Native american women of our home region Annishabee, the Iroquois, the Fox, the Sauk, and dozens of other midwest nations who created baskets of function and of beauty. we seek to honor the history, to acknowledge the oppression of their art, and to celebrate the present art of these women basket makers by creating a woman-centric, gentle, sustainable basket making practice. We are constructing a sustainable tradition by using recycled and found materials and natural materials in our baskets. We will always let you know when our patterns have been influenced and shaped by another basket.

We were not born into this tradition, but instead we have asked it to let us join.
