Perfect In Every detail!
I am familiar with sweet grass baskets woven in my part of South Carolina but have never seen baskets made of pine needles. I am amazed that the weavers are able to keep the strands so perfectly woven that here are no tips or points sticking out in any row. These baskets are much more colorful than the photo shows. I ordered these as a gift to myself, and as a reminder of my recent mission trip to Tecpan. I hope covid “gets gone” so I can return to Guatemala soon. I miss the beautiful land and amazing people.
These baskets are made with perfection. The buff color I ordered is beautiful and doesnt look like it is made out of plastic. They are nice size not to big or to small. They are very useful and would make a nice gift basket for someone. Highly recommend this artisan and would buy from again. Very happy with my purchase!
