Handmade Huacal Basket (Presale-Restock Mid to Late August)
Handmade Huacal BasketHandmade Woman Owned Fair Trade Made and Respectfully sourced in Sierra Norte, Puebla
This particular design was originally made to cary babies with the strap over the forehead of the carrier.
The Material from which these are made is from an endemic tree found in the northern hills of Pueble., locally known as “Jonote”. The weaving of these baskets is done ny experienced artisans, especially elderly women of the village. After the Jonote fiber is extracted from the bark of the tree, artisans them soak for 25 days so the the strands soften (water changed daily). Finally, it is left in the sun in order to dry so they can start to weave and create these functional and aesthetic jewels
