Custom Tradition - Handled Basket
Handled Basket (Tenate con Mecapal)
Tenate con Mecapal translates to “palm basket with handle”. They can be seen throughout the state of Oaxaca, Mexico in markets as customers carry them on their shoulders to store freshly bought produce. Each piece is woven by the women of the Custom Tradition basket weaving collective and made with dried palm leaves featuring a wide handle/strap also made of palm leaves. They are sturdy enough to hold an entire day’s worth of purchased goods, and can also be used as storage or decoration around the home!
