THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Country: Oaxaca, Mexico

Made by our weaver friends in Oaxaca, this piece is dexterously hand-woven by palm leaves gathered in the hills.

Teresa Perez Marquez, 43 years old, lives in the town of San Luis Amatlá. At 33, Teresa became a widow of the man she married as a teenager, and raised three children with. While the children of her first marriage are all grown and married off, Teresa has since remarried and is getting to do motherhood all over again.

Teresa uses her weaving income to support the expenses of her household. Ever tenacious and hard-working, she has not only increased her own production over the past several months, but has also dedicated herself to the training and integration of five new basket weavers.

Beautiful

I’ve reeived a few baskets in my boxes. They are so beautifully made and understatedly colorful with lovely patterns. I sved one for myself and gave the others as gifts packed up with little extra goodies. My friends and family loved and appreciated the beauty and craftamanship.
