Description

These bread baskets are made from fibers collected from esparto plants. Esparto grows abundantly in the high plateaus (over 3200 mt above sea level) with lots of water in Boyacá, Colombia.

In a completely manual process, the fibers are pulled by hand, using knives or other tools to cut it would damage the thread.

Once picked, the leaves are cooked for 6 to 8 hours and then put out to dry for 8 to 15 days (depending on the weather) before being ready to weave.

With the initial process completed, the women, and some men, in Cerinza Boyacá weave the bread baskets, combining ancient craftsmanship and traditions with more contemporary designs.

The perfect complement for any table.
