Our Turquoise Pinera Basket from Ara Collective is a perfect catch-all basket for the little things. From the coast of Mozambique, ilala palm fronds are harvested, cleaned, dyed, and handwoven using techniques passed down by the local elders. With artistic expertise unique to the artisans’ village, this design took about eight hours for one basket. Finished with a pliable tree branch around the rim for shape and strength. Due to the handcrafted nature, each basket varies slightly. Also available in pink.
This basket helps build an artisan training center to provide a healthy, safe, and inspiring working environment for the weavers of the Awavehi Basket Group.
