These baskets are one of the most gorgeous items in our shop, hands down, and works of art in themselves. Choose from three sizes to curate a home filled with the beauty of natural fibres and textures. These baskets have been used as baby carriers by Indigenous communities in Central Mexico stretching back to pre-Hispanic times with the tradition carrying forth today. The top strap is worn across the parent's forehead so that their babes can be carried as chores are completed.
Use these pieces as wall art, holders for lighter books or magazines, fresh flowers, fruit, cloth, etc.
The group of makers crafting these beauties are women - 12 women that collaborate in a democratic manner to handmake a variety of natural goods.
