Oval Basket with Handles
This basket is both beautiful and functional. The basket is made from white palm leaf as the base and has a stripe of brown palm leaf to accent the middle. It is oval shaped and has small handles coming out from the sides. The basket measures approximately 7.5" in length by 6" in width at the base and opens to 9" by 7" at the mouth. It is 4" in height without the handles and 5.5" at the top of the handles.
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 sale of this product helps the artisans to support their families and supports Sharing the Dream's programming in Guatemala.
