United Baskets explores the process of landscape transformation and the persistence of local craft traditions. Vegetable fibers, reeds and totora reeds, are transformed into objects through weaving, using techniques that were developed on the coast of Peru more than five thousand years ago. Fibre weaving is considered the beginning of textile tradition in South America, before cotton or animal fibers.
