Native American Baskets for Sale

American Indian baskets are some of the most unique and awe-inspiring pieces of traditional artwork in the Southwest. Like other types of Native American décor, basket making began out of utilitarian need, and the craftsmanship of the artisans transformed it into an art form valued for its beauty as much as its functionality. Baskets were also used for ceremonial purposes and as a good to use in trade. Authentic Native American baskets are a part of our country’s heritage that Turquoise de Luchia is proud to offer.

Quality of Expertly Made Native American Décor

Basket weaving is one of the oldest crafts in the world, dating back at least 10,000 years. Long before people were making pottery they were weaving together beautiful baskets. They have been discovered all over the world, but some of the most highly prized are those of the Native Americans in the Southwest region of the U.S. Basket making is a skill that requires intricate weaving of fibers such as straw, reeds and grasses. Different colors and sizes of materials are incorporated to create patterns in the base and walls of the basket. Makers sometimes also create lids, handles, and other embellishments to adorn the baskets.

Navajo Wedding Baskets

Navajo wedding baskets, also known as Navajo ceremonial baskets, are much more than a simple piece of Native American décor. They are used in traditional wedding ceremonies and woven to convey a story. In the center there are four points that represent the four sacred mountains of the Navajo people as well as a linear opening into the center. Navajo wedding baskets also incorporate red to signify sunrays, which to the Navajo people is a symbol of health and spirituality. Our Navajo wedding baskets are prime examples of the high-quality craftsmanship required to create such an impressive piece. They have been made and preserved to retain their beauty for years to come.
