These rustic baskets have been used as baby carriers by indigenous communities in Central Mexico since pre-Hispanic times – a tradition that continues in present day. Traditionally, the top strap is worn across the forehead, so that women can carry their little ones on their backs, while getting their chores done. We’ve created a custom round version of the traditional rectangle basket with our artisan partners. These stunning pieces work beautifully as wall art, a holder for magazines or dried flowers, or as an intriguing unisex bag that can be worn over the shoulder or cross body, given the adjustable strap.
This democratic group of 14 women collaborate on a range of products – including baskets, handwoven and embroidered textiles, along with delicately scented handmade soap that is made from local, organic ingredients.
Approximately 40cm x 40cm across, with an adjustable strap. Every piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind, so the shape, size and color will vary per piece.
Wipe with a damp cloth, warm water and mild soap to clean. While a little water won’t hurt this piece, it should not be left damp for long periods, or a musty scent may occur. If this does occur, set the piece in a warm, dry local and reshape if necessary prior to.
