A genuine part of the local culture in Copper Canyon is the basket weaving of the Tarahumara women ( I have NEVER see a Tarahumara man weaving a basket or even in the vicinity when they are being made!). They hang out along the road, at the overlooks, or near the hotels. People are amazed at how perfect and detailed they are. Here is how they get started.
Once the leaves are prepped, the weaving begins…here shown high above Oteros Canyon.
The baskets are innexpensive…like $1-4 USD and come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
