The basket is woven with cedar and different types of grasses including sea, chi’tapt (sharp or swamp), or toq-toq (three-corner). The base of the basket was formed using a plaited cedar weave. The basket rim is cedar. The remainder of the basket was woven using grasses in a wrapped twining technique.
The grasses are coloured with synthetic aniline dye. The sides of the basket features three boat (blue) motifs with two passengers (green and blue) in each. Two rows of blue weaving near the base of the basket. The lid has a blue sun/star shape with one row of pink weave, and two rows of blue weave on the side of the lid.
The basket was likely created by a Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) or Makah maker.
