Our Basket Collection is designed by Juana Mendoza and handmade by her team in the Mixtec Region of Oaxaca. Made of palm fiber harvested in the region, each basket has a unique woven pattern. Our baskets are woven entirely by hand.
The Balandra Basket, named after the stunning Playa Balandra, is particularly special due to its intricate woven pattern. Using only the thinnest pieces of palm, artisans spend days weaving complex designs into basket form. The Balandra Basket is sophisticated, and can easily fit documents, your laptop, and other daily essentials.
- leather shoulder strap comes in honey or coffee colors (From now on we will only be producing honey-colored straps.)
- roughly 14in/36cm tall
Your Balandra Basket will be made to order. It will take from four to eight weeks to arrive.
Due to the artisanal nature of our baskets, it is not uncommon for them to vary in size, shape, or color. This is part of their beauty. Your basket will turn lighter in color as it ages.
