Large Palm Leaf Basket with White Stand
This large palm leaf basket with white stand strikes a perfect balance between the work of the two artisanal communities that make it: the natural palm basket, boiled and handwoven into a wonderfully natural and simple shape by artisans from Tlamacazapa, Guerrero, contrasts wonderfully with the bold and clean metal frame, finished in bright electrostatic paint by blacksmiths in Mexico City.

This beautiful handmade large palm leaf basket is filled with a wealth of Mexican traditions, kept alive by young brands like Petate. Combining old and new, Petate creates contemporary pieces with traditional materials and techniques. In this way, the brand is securing a future for Mexico’s rich craft heritage.
Designers and artisans have collaborated to create this simple, classy basket. The artisans do not simply make the pieces, but help to design them. Their skills and expertise influence the choices made throughout the production process, from start to finish. The social and cultural contexts of the makers also play a part, and have led to unique changes in the design. For example, the craftspeople of Tlamacazapa can only get a few liters of water per day. This makes dyeing a dangerously wasteful process. As a result, artisans use traditional palm weaving techniques. These are more sustainable, with wonderful and meaningful results.
Tradition, respect and sustainability are thus all rolled into one by Petate. Having worked its way into our homes and our hearts, Petate is now working for a better, more tasteful world. The versatility, aesthetics and uniquely meaningful backstory of this piece makes it perfect for any space.
Petate takes three (3) weeks to prepare this large palm leaf basket with white stand. Once the designer has completed product development, you will receive an email confirming that your purchase is on the way. This email includes a tracking number that allows you to verify the status of your order.
