Baskets

  • Exhibition Text

    • The Coast Salish wove baskets for storage, transport, and cooking. The cooking baskets were made of cedar roots by the coiling technique. Baskets made by the twining technique were used chiefly for storage, and burden baskets were either twined or coiled. Decorative designs were made by a technique called imbrication in which colored grasses or roots were woven into the baskets so that they showed on the outside only.
