HANDMADE CHAMBIRA PALM FIBER BASKET - WB420 - WOVEN BY ARTISAN FROM PERUVIAN AMAZON

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.  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.
