The “Cuatro Tetas” basket is a beautiful, chic way to store throws, pillows or even toys. Beautiful and functional, literally meaning “four breasts”, is hand woven by expert craftswomen in the pacific rainforest of Colombia. The artisans, displaced by rural violence ten years ago, took up basket weaving upon arriving to their new home and use the craft as a means for economic independence.
One small basket takes approximately 5-7 days to make, a process that begins with gathering and drying the straw, dyeing it naturally, and crafting it into the product you hold today.
At AZULINA HOME we proudly practice fair trade principles by working directly with our artisans and paying them fair wages for their craft.
