Micaela Basket

The Micaela Basket features a variety of delicate raffia stitches on coils of pine needles and pajón, a native grass that grows in the highlands of Guatemala. The central circle transitions to a square basket thanks to open corners. Indigo blue raffia and pine needles accent the lovely design, which is both decorative and entirely functional.

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.
