Our collection of baskets was handcrafted by the indigenous Wichi community.
Wichi women have worked with Chaguar for centuries. Using ancient techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, they weave beautiful and natural baskets.
handwoven baskets
Chaguar is a plant that grows in the north of Argentina, that is very similar to the aloe vera plant. It's a resistant and durable fibre.
To obtain this material, Wichi women first travel into the forest in small groups to harvest the chaguar by hand.
After the harvesting period the women prepare the leaves by cleaning them and drying.
Once dry, the fibers are worked into threads by rubbing them together on their thighs. These threads are later hand dyed with natural pigments obtained from roots, seeds and fruits which give them a earthy colour palett. 
Using ancient patterns or inspiration from their surrounding, Wichi women hand weave each basket.
This process brings into existence distinctive decorative pieces to add to your home and give personality to any space.
This sustainable collection will bring simplicity and softness to any room. 
Display them on top of furniture, hang them on a wall or arrange them in a favourite corner of your house.
As always, every piece is one of a kind. We value the uniqueness of each one, as well as the old techniques involved to create them and their authentic handmade process. 
Hope you love them as much as I do.
