Basket-weaving have thrived in the Palestinian farming communities for centuries.  Using the materials plentiful in their surroundings, women create various items used at thier homes and outdoors, such as baskets, trays, and containers.  The women show off their creativity by combining different color twigs - olive, almond, turpentine, etc. - to weave in beautiful designs in each piece.
