In the early 20th century, the Chemehuevi Indians were a small tribe living in the Mojave Desert (approximately 350 people). In spite of the very harsh environment, they wove elegant baskets, almost all of which have an uncluttered geometric design. This basket is a fine example, woven out of willow and devil's claw along with willow that was stained red. The weaving is even and fine as is the shape as it expands outward in the body, curving in before a slight fare at the neck. Stitch count is 18-20 stitches per inch and coil count is 8 coils per inch.
