This stunning basket is designed and handcrafted by Mayan women in a fair trade cooperative in Guatemala. It is intricately woven of pajon, a native wild grass, and pine needles with colorful raffia accents. Sturdy and extremely well-made, it can be used to hold fruit, mail, etc - or better yet, leave it empty to show off the gorgeous interior. It will bring the fresh smell of natural grasses into your home.
Wild grass, pine needles and raffia ribbon.

ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This basket was handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Guatemala. The artisans 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.
