Cooperativa de Artesanos Indígenas de Sonora (CAIS) - hand-woven baskets - Sonora, Mexico The Cooperativa de Artesanos Indígenas de Sonora or CAIS, was recently established as the culmination of a project started by Lutisuc, a non profit organization, to support and expose the different crafts made by the indigenous groups of the State of Sonora.
