The two baskest in the background illustrate an unadorned work basket on the left and a basket with false embroidery designs on the right. In the foreground two hats are shown with painted designs.
Traditional Knowledge: 

The work basket on the left would have probably been used to gather resources and most likely taken out into the gathering site. The adorned basket may have been used to store special items within the clan house.

The hats in the foreground each have their own unique shape and painted designs. The weavers noted that one of them had a special design painted on the top of the hat, and the shapes varied greatly. Almost all of the hats they saw at the Museum had an inner hat band that was woven into the hat.
