While this custom basket may appear to be a simple piece for storage, given that it took 15 hours to produce, it’s anything but simple. Handmade with organic, hand-gathered tree bark and vines by master artists in Central Mexico, this elegant piece is large enough to store toilet paper and toiletries, spices, small toys or books. It’s the result of direct collaborations with this group, and is made exclusively for our stock. The bottom showcases a braided design, for extra strength, along with creative techniques that have been employed since pre-Hispanic times. This pretty piece can be hung from a wall, placed on a shelf, or even set on the floor for easy access.
This democratic group of 12 women collaborate on a range of products – including baskets, bags, home wares, hand woven and embroidered textiles, jewelry and handmade soap. The group formed in 1988 as a means to source and share orders, and effectively support the women in their small community in Mexico.
Approximately 46cm long x 30cm wide x 16cm deep
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 and mold may occur. Also, as this piece is made from organic elements, if it’s store outside, it will weather much faster, and possibly warp, than if kept indoors.
The price is for a single hanging basket. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colors may vary slightly from the featured product image.
