Our Kenten (pronounced ken-ˈtān) backpack is woven from wild date palm. The artisan harvests these palm fronds, pulling apart the stringy threads, braiding them into ropes that are then dried in the sun. The stem of the woody palm is used as ribbing and runs vertical in the weaving process. The artisan weaves the braided fronds through the ribbed structure to secure the basket shape and form. The final product is exquisitely constructed and sturdy.
