Radiant Diamond Basket with Lid
This bold lidded basket is perfect for brightening up any room. Basket is handmade using white and brown palm fronds woven in to geometric diamonds on the side of the basket and matching diamonds on the lid. Lid fits tightly on the basket. Measures 5 1/2" in diameter at base, 6" in height, 9" in diameter at mouth without lid.
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.
