Chaguar Art Basket - One of a Kind - Natural Browns
Our basket bowls are handwoven from the strong chaguar fiber, gathered by the indigenous Wichi women of the El Portillo community in Chaco, Northern Argentina. After gathering the wild crop, they process the chaguar in a traditional method that includes many days of soaking the harvest, drying the removed fibers, then working them into a weavable texture by “spinning” them on their thighs, protected by ash. Finally, they weave the beautiful basket bowls and craft other pieces the Wichi are celebrated makers of.
Each bowl is absolutely unique, and colors may vary due to the artisan's creative process and handcrafted features.
