Halibut fish skin basket

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Stitched together in traditional methods, this halibut skin basket has skin from the top and bottom of the halibut. Small fins are incorporated into the design. Each skin is prepared and treated for 2 months before it is ready to sew. All pieces are sewn together by hand with sinew and tiny stitches.

The basket is highly unusual for the art form with its small opening and curved pieces. It is carefully dried and embellished with beads.

The fish skin basket is for display. It is sturdy but not designed for heavy use. It stands about 12” tall and is one of a kind.
