Melany Basket

Finely crafted from longleaf pine needles, wild grass, and raffia, this basket combines a variety of stitches that create an intricate checkered design perfect to display on a wall or shelf. This basket is entirely practical too - use it on the table to hold fruit or by the door to catch keys. 

The baskets are woven in the Guatemalan Highlands by cooperatives of women who work to support their families and communities. Working within a democratically organized group insures that the income is fairly distributed among all artisans in the coop and allows members to participate in decisions about their work. Coop members share skills and expertise, encourage one another and enjoy mutual support.
