Handmade from sustainably sourced longleaf pine needles and pajón, a native wild grass found in the Guatemalan Highlands, these heirloom-quality baskets will enhance the home with their natural beauty and texture and their subtle fragrance. Basket makers masterfully combine color, form, and fine stitches to create baskets that, while perfect for display, are entirely functional as well. An ever-expanding community is collecting these baskets, each of which bears a tag signed by the basket artist who crafted it.
