This basket is a typical Willamette Valley Kalapuya juncus basket. It has mud dyed maple bark, beargrass and juncus rush. The juncus used in this basket and throughout the Valley is juncus effuses.
The basket starts with crossed bunches of juncus, two rows of twine then paired off into twos. The warps are added by folding over the adjacent warps and adds two. For the weft, the moving weaver curls up alongside adjoining warp around the new end. The rim is made with a horizontal braid. The decretive dark colored bands is the dyed maple bark, and the white is beargrass. It also has a signature double braided handle.
