This round, shallow basket is intricately woven of pajon, a native wild grass, pine needles and accented with blue and purple raffia ribbon. Sturdy and extremely well-made, it can be used to hold your treasures or displayed to show off its beautiful interior. And it brings the fresh smell of natural grasses into your home.
Wild grass, pine needles.

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. Working with 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.
