The designs appear often as dots, circles, lines, and waves in a variety of combinations.These beautiful baskets are 100% organic, 100% sustainable and are an integral part of their culture. Timeless pieces of art!

Die Yanomami leben im venezolanisch-brasilianischem Grenzgebiet an der 1000 Meter hohen Sierra Parima, der Wasserscheide zwischen den Flüssen Orinoco und Amazonas. Ungefähr 19 000 Yanomami bewohnen einen Fläche so groß wie die Schweiz. Seit dem Eindringen von Gold und Diamantensucher in den 70er Jahren des 20.Jahrhundert sind ihre dortigen Lebensgrundlagen gefährdet. (Wikepedia)
