Abstract

Description

Abstract motifs in Tlingit basketry carry Native names that are drawn from nature and patterns found in the social environment. This basket shows what is called the blanket border design, which refers to the border pattern found on some pre-contact ceremonial blankets; it also resembles the Greek fret-style borders found on Hudson's Bay Company blankets made especially for the Indian trade.
