Rogans are birch bark baskets made by the Attikameks in Quebec, Canada.
The baskets were traditionally used by women collecting berries in
the forest and for storing food. They are made from birch bark
that has been tied together with spruce roots. The rogans have
smoked moose hide straps, unsmoked moose hide straps, or deer leather straps. Usually, the rogans are decorated with
designs of flowers and animals that have been scraped into the
bark. Some large containers are used as clothes hampers.
Each rogan is unique. We do have have some standard sizes in stock. Most of the larger rogans are catalogued individually and you can see our Gallery of unique birchbark rogans for sale.
