Handwoven Mexican Baskets

Our baskets are handwoven in a small village on the shores of Lake Cuitzeo in the state of Michoacán. One of the traditional activities in this area is the collection of "Tules" (Typhus dominguensis) from the lake to weave useful baskets and furniture. Recent changes in vegetation and water levels have prompted a switch in raw materials from Tules to stronger, more durable plastic strip. As fish stocks have decreased in the lake this source of income has become increasingly important to the survival of the local population.
 
The baskets are strong, colourful and very practical. They are available in two sizes.
