Handwoven Tortilla Basket w/lid
This traditional basket was handmade by Purepecha Indian artisans on the shores of Lake Patzcuaro. Very attractive and sturdy, this basket is made from "chuspata" or tule reeds that grow in the lake. It was originally made to hold tortillas--and it's perfect for that-- but these can also be used to store jewelry, sewing supplies or other keepsakes. Our baskets feature a tightly fitting lid and woven handle.
This is a large basket for holding small corn tortillas--approximately 8 in. diameter, 4 inches high.
*For just a bit more you can have one of our lovely handwoven Turicuaro cotton napkins to go with your basket.
