As described by David E. Adler, Inc.

On the Columbia Plateau, soft twined bags were essential for native peoples like the Nez Perce, Yakama, Umatilla, and others. Because of the labor and skill involved in their construction and design, and the beauty of the finished pieces, these baskets were prized possessions. Usually twined from the peeled, cured, and hand-spun fibers of dogbane or silkweed, the bags were decorated with contrasting-colored plant fibers.
