Lidded Basket - Large

A handwoven basket so beautiful, you’ll find yourself wishing for clutter so you can add one to every room. Made of Honduran suyate leaves, this basket brings a natural, organic feel to any space. Designed in a clean, minimal silhouette, it effortlessly blends in modern or traditional homes alike.
Each basket is meticulously woven by hand by The Women of San Juan. These artisans are part of an indigenous group in Honduras called the Tolupanes and come from the San Juan tribe. They live in a remote area called Montana De La Flor. Basket weaving is a handicraft that has been passed down through many generations. The suyate leaves used to make the baskets grows in the higher altitudes of Montana De La Flor and the artisans walk for several hours to pick it. It then has to be laid out to dry before being used to create the baskets.
