This basket was a floor model and so the color of the grass has faded from the pale green pictured to more of a pale straw color.
Handwoven by women in the Guatemalan Highlands, these lidded tortilla baskets are perfect for serving tortillas, or elegant storage around the home. The soft green of the native pajón grass will mellow with time into a golden color, accented by longleaf pine needles.
Makes a great gift bundled with our Tortilla Press Kit
Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit organization partnering with about 200 talented Mayan women to share their work, handwoven from sustainably sourced longleaf pine needles and pajón, a native wild grass found in the Guatemalan Highlands.
