      Exquisitely crafted basket handmade from sustainably sourced longleaf pine needles. Basket makers masterfully combine color, form, and fine stitchery to create baskets that, while perfect for display, are entirely functional as well.

      Product description

      The Mayra Basket, handwoven of pine needles and pajon, a native grass of the Guatemalan highlands, features a central pinwheel design and gracefully curved handles. Its versatile size and shape make it a perfect fruit or bread basket or a handy receptacle to organize projects and mail.  Handmade and fair trade.

      • Pine needles,  pajon (wild grass) and raffia
      • 9" diameter base, 10.5" top excluding handles, 14" including handles, 2.75" high 

       This basket is named for the young daughter of a Mayan Hands basket maker. Mayra stayed with her mother as she worked on the design and was thrilled with the completed basket (see right). Her mom's income through fair trade means Mayra will have the opportunity to attend school, something her mother was not able to do as a girl.
