Creating this amazing basket begins with gathering the leaves from the tops of palm trees and stripping away the flesh of the leaf to leave only the supple central vein. Then the vein stems must be woven within 48 hours of harvest by a collective of specialized artists to form the basket; any longer and the palm veins become too brittle to work with. The beauty of the intricate weaving pattern adds texture and subtlety to the basket’s soft shape. Fill it with fruit or mail or magazines. Or leave it empty to enjoy the wonder of the intricate pattern.
