Outside of the ancient city of Jaén, just north of Granada, townspeople craft these baskets one-by-one. Aged wicker is woven to create a sturdy frame, then handwoven esparto grass adds a timeless accent.
Esparto grass is one of the most traditional materials in Spain. It was used for everything from window shades, to kitchen storage to saddles for burros. In modern times it has been replaced by more modern fabrics and containers, and there are very few workshops that continue to practice the craft of weaving esparto grass. Your purchase will help preserve this artisan tradition for future generations.
