Willow Pouch (Sold)

Sold - No Longer Available 
This pouch has spokes of Willow bark, and is woven with inner bark of the Black Walnut and American Elm. The shiny greenish twined rows are of Rattlesnake Master leaves, a tall-grass prairie plant, once commonly found in Missouri. And the white twined rows are of Basswood fiber, the inner bark of a tree also known as Linden. The bark is rotted for six weeks in a pond, and then rinsed thoroughly, and the inner bark is peeled apart into tissue-thin layers. A piece of scrap leather makes up the cover. The latch bead is a Kentucky Coffee Tree bean, and seed beads, shells, and glass beads make up the loop. The hanging cord is hand-spun cordage made with Basswood fiber. All materials for this pouch were harvested, prepared, and created entirely by hand, from the standing trees and plants to the finished basket.
