Basket Nickel Rounded Orange
16”D + 4.25”H
High in the mountains of the Mexico, a gentle wind blows through the pine tree forest. As they have for thousands of years, the needles from these trees fall settling on the forest floor. It is with this simple piece of natures refuse and the skill and talent of true artisans that our pine needle baskets are made.
After it is collected, the natural fiber is cleaned thoroughly to remove dirt and bundled to prepare for weaving. What happens next is nothing less than remarkable. The weavers start the basket by tying a durable nylon thread to the end of a thin coil of needles. As they weave the desired shape, the artisan dampens the pine needles making them more pliable while another hand stitches with the nylon line binding the coils together. When the pine needle run out they insert more until the basket is complete. The finished product is exceptional with its humble elegance and natural pine scent. Nickel trim is added to many of our designs elevating them to both modern and contemporary. The contrast between the natural pine basket and the nickel trim is exquisite.
The weaving of natural fibers is an art form man has passed down through generations. We hope through our company’s hard work we can continue promoting the talent of these amazing artisans and preserve the art of pine needle basket weaving for many years to come.
