Intricate raffia stitches in natural, brown and blue form coils of longleaf pine needles, two of which twine to accent the basket side. And like all of our pine needle baskets, it will bring the fresh aroma of natural grasses into your home.

ABOUT THE ARTISANS
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.
