Handwoven Tortilla Basket w/lid --MORE COMING SOON!

$ 16.00

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 It was originally made to hold tortillas--and it's perfect for that-- but these can also be used to store jewelry, sewing supplies or other keepsakes.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 a little extra, we'll include a beautiful handwoven cloth napkin! We currently have them in off-white, yellow, and turquoise. Please let us know which you would like!
