Pine and Grass Tortilla Basket, Guatemala

This beautiful little basket is perfect for tortillas or anything else you want to keep covered with a lid.  It is made of grasses native to Guatemala and pine needles.  The soft green grass will mellow into a golden color over time.

8" wide x 2.5" high.


The women who handcraft our pine needle baskets go out together, often to quite distant places, to collect the longest pine needles they can find and then stitch them together with raffia and native grasses. As beneficiaries of Fair Trade, the women earn regular income, allowing them to feed their families, send their children to school and harbor hopes for a better future.
