Large Palm Basket with Lid
Make your storage beautiful with this large round lidded basket. White palm leaf is woven in an open spaced pattern, and basket has a fitted lid so you can keep the contents neatly out of sight. Measures 11" in diameter at base, 9" in height, and 11" in diameter at mouth.
This fair trade basket is handmade by Amasaja, a group of more than 50 women artisans from two villages close to Chiquimula, Guatemala, who use palm and coconut leaves to weave baskets. The group originally wove hats, brooms, and mats from the palm fronds, but these items don’t sell at a high price. Now, the artisans make these artfully crafted baskets and earn a higher price for their work so that they can better support their families.
