Round Tri-Colored Diamond Pattern Basket
This basket is perfect for storing bread, fruit, your keys, or as an accent piece. The basket is hand-woven using three naturally occurring colors of palm leaves and has a funky pattern on the side of the basket. The basket measures approximately 3" in height, 7.5" in diameter at the base and opens to 9". It looks great as a stand-alone piece or when paired with the Round Tri-Colored Bread Basket or the Tri-Color Chevron 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.
