To make your basket unique and valuable, the family member who makes your basket signs their name to it. As an extra personal touch, if the family member who makes your basket is under 18, they will also put their age next to their name.  

This is an example of a family member signing the bottom of a basket when they have finished weaving it. (Note: Of course, Katieann cannot weave all the baskets. Some baskets are woven by one of her brothers, sisters, or parents. Whoever weaves your basket will be the person who puts their own name on it when they finish.)
