Place this decorative handmade basket on a table to hold mail or knick-knacks or hang one or more on a wall to show off their unique designs. Our baskets are woven by Peruvian Amazon artisans from natural chambira palm fiber. They come in a wide range of stunning patterns and colors fashioned from both natural plant and other vibrant dyes and are adorned with seed and wooden beads. Baskets range in size from 8 to 14 inches across. The sale of these baskets supports forest conservation and helps meet local needs in traditional communities in Peru. This basket was made by a campesino artisan from the association Manos Amazonicas (Amazon Hands) in the village of Chino on the Tahuayo River. Each basket comes with a tag listing the name and village of the artisan who made it and the plants used to make it.
