    Description

    The twisting and weaving of Nature's materials, grasses, twigs, rushes and vines, into useful and beautiful forms seems almost instinctive in man.

    Perhaps it came to him as the nest-weaving instinct comes to birds—for at first he used it as they do, in the building of his house.

    Today Indian tribes in South America weave baskets from their native palms, South Africans use reeds and roots, while the Chinese and Japanese are wonderful workmen in this as in other arts and industries; but basketry has come down to us more directly through the American Indian.

    Generations of these weavers have produced masterpieces, many of which are preserved in our museums, and the young basket maker need not go on long pilgrimages to study the old masters of his craft.
