A stylish storage solution, or a striking piece of decor––these baskets do double duty and are the perfect place to hold blankets, magazines, or anything that needs tucking away.
Made by talented artisans from the town of Tequisquiapan, Mexico, known locally as the "Basketmaking Paradise", as weavers in this area have been using the same techniques for centuries. Most of the baskets from this region are made with wicker—a natural material that comes from a willow-like bush. The long, thin and flexible branches are shaped to create the final silhouette. These hard-working artisans rely entirely on basket weaving as the main source of income to support their families, and children are taught the skill at a young age in order to carry the tradition forward.
