Handmade Woman Owned Fair Trade Made 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This particular design was originally made to cary babies with the strap over the forehead of the carrier.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 by 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

Dimensions and coloring may vary since they are handmade.
