Magdalena Peñasco, Oaxaca
The Degradé Baskets are woven by the hands of 7 artisan women from the Magdalena Peñasco community, in the Sierra Mixteca of Oaxaca. The set is made up of 3 baskets with a square base and a round top finish, where the base starts in natural green and gradually changes to the natural beige color of the palm in the upper half. The Degradé Baskets pay tribute to the natural colors of the palm that are manually classified from palm to palm, separating their tones to later be woven. These baskets fit one inside the other and can be used for home storage or as planters.
Care: It is recommended to clean with a damp cloth and allow to dry thoroughly before using or storing
