Dried esparto grass has been used for thousands of years in Spain. It was integral to the olive oil pressing process until a few decades ago, when the esparto mats were replaced with more modern materials. It was also used to make saddles, durable bags and hundreds of other uses.
Now this ancient tradition can be part of your home. Functional yet decorative, this round bread basket would be a beautiful addition to your kitchen or dining room. Each round basket is approximately 12 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall.
