OAXACA PALM BASKET
This handwoven and hand-painted basket was made in Oaxaca from palm fronds, using traditional techniques. As well as being a highly versatile object these baskets are, in many Mexican homes, a beautiful and colorful decorative piece which can fill any room with joy.
The ‘Mixtec’ region is recognized for the unique work of its weavers, who produce much of their work using palm fronds. The process is long and complex, with artisans sitting for hours designing and weaving each of their pieces.
Palm fronds are versatile and durable and can be bent and doubled without suffering long-term damage that isn’t fixable with a splash of water. Due to these properties, the fronds are used to produce a wide range of objects, for which Oaxaca is well known.
