Mayan Hands is a fair-trade nonprofit organization dedicated to providing economic and educational opportunities to Mayan women and girls so that they can build sustainable futures for themselves, their families and communities, as they continue to live within the culture they cherish. The baskets are handmade from sustainably sourced longleaf pine needles and pajón, a native wild grass found in the Guatemalan Highlands, these heirloom-quality baskets will enhance the home with their natural beauty and texture and their subtle fragrance. Basket makers masterfully combine color, form, and fine stitchery to create baskets that, while perfect for display, are entirely functional as well. 

Artisans created this basket with sustainably harvested native grass and fragrant pine needles with colorful yarn accents.  This beautiful basket is named "aurora," the Spanish word for dawn, for the first light of sunrise when Mayan women rise to prepare tortillas for their families. Handmade and fair trade.

Wild grass, pine needles, raffia, and cotton yarn

Dimensions:  9" diameter x 3" high
