Handmade Hanging Wall Basket


This product is sold out

These rustic baskets have been used as baby carriers by indigenous communities in Central Mexico since pre-Hispanic times – a tradition that continues in present day. Traditionally, the top strap is worn across the forehead, so that women can carry their little ones on their backs, while getting their chores done. These stunning pieces of history would also work beautifully as wall art, a holder for magazines or dried flowers.

This democratic group of 14 women collaborate on a range of products – including baskets, handwoven and embroidered textiles, along with delicately scented handmade soap that is made from local, organic ingredients.
