Lofty says:

“This basket was masterfully woven by Mary Holiday Black, whose hand-made creations bring warmth and charm to any space. Widely celebrated for reviving the basket weaving tradition on the Navajo Reservation in the 1950s, Black’s gorgeous baskets are surprisingly versatile and may be used for decoration and storage.” -- Nurit Lewis

Product Description:

Large low bowl or wall plaque hand-woven Navajo basket by famous maker Mary Holiday Black of the Four Corners region. Known for reviving the basket weaving tradition on the Navajo Reservation in the 1950s and recipient of many awards and grants, her family is still highly regarded as basket weavers and here work highly regarded. Boldly decorated in black and red butterflies surrounded by diamonds and a multi-pointed star boarder on a tan ground. Natural fibers such as locally harvested yucca woven over a willow rod core were used just as Mary's ancestors did hundreds of years ago.
