How they make those Tarahumara baskets…weaving.


Tarahumara women weaving baskets above Oteros Canyon.

Usually it happens in silence – like the Tarahumara women are silent. The country around roars with wonder and is never silent. Dry little hands sort and gently count the strand of pine and sotol beginning at the bottom of a new basket.

These women were weaving at a view point off the road at the Oteros Canyon.

Usually these baskets range in price from $1.50 to $4 USD. They always seem to have a good stock and seem contented to bargain a bit. I always pay full price or more- they are so inexpensive! Often they are fresh and will have the pine scent deal going.
