"Early observers noted that the basketmakers of Puget Sound had mastered a great diversity of techniques -- coiling, twining and plaiting -- as well as distinctive decorative stitches. As a basketry region, Puget Sound is distinguished by a shared repertoire of techniques, materials and designs. Through ceremonial exchanges and intermarriage, techniques and designs were disseminated among the many village groups while certain individual and regional patterns remained distinct".-introduction.
