A weaver will use different types of weaving that depend on the use or design of the basket. Sometimes there are different types of weaving in one basket because of the design. Some weavers only know a few weaves and some know many weaves, it depends on what they were taught. The kind of weaving is very important when it comes to what the basket is actually going to be used for. If it is going to be used for holding oil or water the weave is going to be really tight, so the basket won’t have any holes in it. Every basket makers weave is different even if it is the same technique and no two baskets are the same because they are so complex.
