Oval Color Block Lidded Basket
This oval shaped palm basket is great for storing away small bits of clutter. Basket is made from white palm with brown palm striped accents on the basket and lid, and lid fits tightly on the basket.
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.
