  • This remarkable burden basket handcrafted by Apache artist Beverly Enfiled honors the well-known legacy of basketry in Apache culture. Woven by hand from light and dark strips of willow, the basket features a beautifully intricate geometric pattern. The basket is adorned with lengths of tan buckskin and tin and includes a carry strap for hanging. Once used by the Apache for gathering and carrying food, burden baskets today are often hung outside the door of homes to represent leaving your burdens at the door before entering. This lovely burden basket is both a fun gift idea and an inspiring way to bring an ancient art form into your home.
