In the Appalachians, both before and during the Craft Revival, baskets were made from a variety of materials.  By far the most common material for non-Cherokee baskets was white oak.  These baskets were made from a young oak sapling that was split laterally again and again to form long, supple splits or splints.  Woven over a framework of ribs, split oak baskets were sturdy.
