The sweet Margarita Basket is delicately handwoven from pajón, a native grass of the Guatemalan Highlands, and sustainably harvested longleaf pine needles. Designed and handmade by the women of Mayan Hands' El Triunfo cooperative, this basket is a wonderful tabletop accent, but was designed to be used! 

  • Native grass, pine needles, raffia
  • 7" diameter, 1 1/2" high

While each Mayan Hands group has its own story and personality, there are some things that they all share. They live in rural areas, in adobe houses, have outhouses, running water in the pila (outdoor concrete sink used for everything), and electricity. In many ways that means they are in better shape than the poorest of the poor here. But they are no longer in that category because of their work with Mayan Hands.
