THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Country: Mexico

For the people of the Mixteca region of Mexico, basket-weaving is a way of life that also sustains life. With a dexterity passed down through generations, ancestry come to life in the tireless work of fingers, the weavers weave palms into vibrant, multi-colored baskets. On the outskirts of Oaxaca City, Doña Martina Garcia and her group of eight artisan basket weavers produce roughly 700 baskets per month.

For each artisan involved, basket-weaving means a stable monthly income used for building a house, starting a small business, or purchasing food and medicine. For Doña Martina (pictured left), her steady sales through GlobeIn have meant being able to spend more time at home, where she can work on her baskets while taking care of her children. Recently, she sold her stall in the Oaxaca Crafts Market, where she had been selling for ten years, and has dedicated herself and her small team to working entirely for GlobeIn.

Gorgeous Basket

All the palm leaf baskets are beautiful, but the pink are my favorite. So rich, so vivid! The baskets are wonderful for storage or for using in place of gift wrap. I use them on my nightstand, on my vanity, in my kitchen to hold tea bags. They add a pop of color wherever they are!
