Kathy Rousso’s fiber art reflects her time in southeast Alaska and Central America. Her baskets combine traditional Northwest Coast basketry twined and Guatemalan net bag knotless netted techniques. She learned how to make Guatemalan net bags while conducting research on agave fiber textiles with a Fulbright grant, in conjunction with the Mueso Ixchel del Traje Indigena in Guatemala City. Additional knowledge of net bags is from subsequent research, from southern Mexico to northern Colombia.
