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.

Cute and well made

Lovely colors - top only fits when full but very useful size. Keep handy for your small desk top items.

Small hand woven basket

I keep this on the back of my toilet for a spare ball toilet paper. Friend of mine had seen it and liked it so I bought her one

Nice basket

Love the basket and have bought others as well in varying sizes and colors. Didn’t give this one all the stars this time though, because the top doesn’t fit as it should so I’m just using the top separately. This is the first time I’ve gotten one where the top didn’t fit, so I will still recommend it.
