Traditional Cherokee Style Bark Baskets

In the Appalachian Cherokee Indian Tradition, we harvest Tulip Poplar Bark during the four week span in late Spring when the sap is running strongest through the tree. Each piece is hand-peeled, and the shape of each basket is dictated by the specific section of the log and any natural markings or embelishments it may have in it's skin. We then shape, stitch, and finish each basket by hand, using mother earth's bounty for detail and decor.
