History of Apache Burden Baskets

This beautiful handmade Apache Burden Basket was crafted by an Apache artisan. These amazing burden baskets are fashioned from cottonwood and mulberry sticks and were used for utility baskets to gather fruit, berries, herbs or nuts and to also carry items in. These baskets are still used in traditional Apache ceremonies today.

The dark weave is the outside bark and the light weave is the inside of the bark. The baskets were normally carried on the back and the weight was supported by a strap that went to the carriers forehead. This basket is wrapped with leather at the top to provide greater support and durability. The basket is decorated with numerous leather strips and tin cones on the ends. The tin cones jingle when the basket is moved and this sound was said to ward of snakes as the woman walked.

This basket is approximately three inches in diameter at the mouth and narrows to one inch at the base. The basket is about two and a half to three inches in height and has an overall hanging length of around eleven inches.

We only have a few of these in stock and we may not be getting any more for quite some time after these are gone. Please email us if you are looking for larger baskets.

Each basket comes with a card detailing the history of the burden baskets. See the detailed images for views of several sides of the basket.
