Olive Green and Black Swirl Basket
This basket would look great as an accent piece on a table or hanging on the wall. Made from pine needles and cotton thread, the basket features a swirl design in black and olive green. The basket measures approximately 9.5" in diameter and 1.75" in height. Due to the mixed materials and the handmade nature of the basket, each basket is uniquely shaped.
This fair trade Guatemalan basket is handmade from pine needles by a group of women artisans in the mountains trying to sustain their families. The artisan group was originally founded after the civil war by war widows and orphans as a way to support themselves. The group started out by making woven bracelets, and now makes beautiful pine needle baskets. Purchase of this product helps the artisans to support their families and Sharing the Dream to support our programming in Guatemala.
