Picnic Basket

Michoacán Picnic Basket:

Handmade from Tule, a broadleaf cattail that grows on the edges of Lake Patzcuaro in Michoacán. Tule must be dried in the sun to lose its green color completely but not so much that it becomes brittle and can’t be woven and shaped. The basket is lined with manta fabric from Torreón, Coahuila. To care for your basket, simply wipe clean with a moist cloth and dry completely. Avoid chlorine and harsh cleaners. Lining is pre-shrunk so it can be thrown in the wash.

Size: L 9.3 H 8.4 W 12.2 inches
