Basket Weaving

On Pediatokope, one of the largest islands in Ada, basket weaving is a significant economic activity alongside fishing. They use palm straw harvested from the forest. After splitting it into two sections, the bottom is used for the basket’s base, while the top is for weaving. The process involves drying the straw, measuring it based on the desired basket size, and creating the base. A team of skilled individuals works on different aspects of basket making.
