THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
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.
Beautiful, but thin. It will not stand straight if empty.

I collect hearts and this was the first "heart" basket I've ever seen. It's darling!! Goes well with all of my other collected hearts.
Heart Handwoven Basket (Valentine)
I got this little basket to put all of the soapstone hearts in as a valentine gift for my grandchild. It is a nice little gift that went nicely with the hearts and there is plenty of room for other items along with the hearts. Little out of shape when it arrived but easily fixable. I love it.
Valentine heart basket
Perfect basket for gift giving!
