Basket weaving

Coconut trees are amazing – almost every part of a coconut tree can be used for human purposes!

The leaves are especially useful for weaving baskets of various types – some are used for carrying food and others are used for baking food.

On the day of the celebration feast (see earlier blog post), I learnt how to make the kind of basket that is used for baking some traditional food. Here are some pictures.

The finished product!
