HANDMADE BASKETS

Fibras vegetales or plant fiber are another branch of Michoacán traditional crafts. Hats, animal figures, mats, and even furniture are made by indigenous artisans out of a variety of plant material, from pine needles in the eastern Sierra, to palm leaves on the Coast, to tule reeds found around Lake Patzcuaro.  Mexico By Hand carries unusual baskets made from a variety of natural materials grown in the region.
