THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Makaua

Country: Mexico

This basket is the result of a people tied tightly to a sense of place marrying their innate creativity to nature’s offerings. In the southern mountains of Mexico, this offering is palm, a resource used by the people of the region for centuries. Palm is an incredible natural fiber, flexible enough to weave into intricate designs while still durable and long-lasting.

Makaua artisans combine skills inherited from ancestors with their own individual creative visions. Don Migue, 49, is considered to be the most talented artisan in the community. He produces all Makua items and also develops new and complex designs. Largely self-taught, Don Migue’s philosophy is—if it doesn’t work, try again and again until it’s perfect.
