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.

Love the colors

The basket is great. It is 9 inches round and has the most brilliant decorative colors. It is perfect for tortillas, but would also make a nice piece of home decor.

I am so pleased with this tortilla basket. It is awesome. Beautifully made, so much work put in to them. With the dimples on it it keeps the sweat from the hot tortillas off my table. Really a great item.
