This pine needle basket is a fair trade product from a Mayan weaving group in Guatemala. It is as useful as it is beautiful, and is sturdy enough for daily use. Handwoven from pine needles and raffia, it is round with an upright rim. It is about 13" in diameter and is 3" deep. It's perfect for holding bread or fruit, although you may just want to admire it! Because each basket is handmade, the one you receive may vary slightly from the one in the image, although it will be very similar. It includes an information card with the name of the weaver on it.
