Baleen Baskets
Ever heard the term “under water basket weaving”? That’s exactly the method used to create these beautiful and authentic works of art. Traditionally, the men of the northern villages weave the baleen baskets. For those unfamiliar with it, baleen comes from the whale’s mouth.

It serves as the filtration method of gathering tiny plankton and krill from the seawater for consumption. These Alaskan Native made baskets are rare and are ever increasing in value. A definite must have for the serious basket collector.
