Mexican Woven Plant Hanger, Purple & Green

  • £42.00

These extraordinary hand-woven palm plant hangers are made by the women of San Luis in the State of Oaxaca. Thanks to its flexibility, palm is a material that has been used in many communities around the world to develop useful items for everyday life, such as baskets or plant holders.

A lot of time and skill is required to make these baskets, using techniques that have been mastered over generations; the palm leaves are stripped and dyed then woven using traditional Mixtec patterns. The purchase of these baskets allows the safeguarding of a culture threatened by globalisation and mass migration; artisans can sustain their craft while continuing to pass it on to future generations, maintaining their cultural identity. Here is a video that shows the processes that go in to making these baskets: Tenates de Palma - San Luis Amatlán
