Biulu products are more than just products, they are the idea that business/customer transactions can also put something back into the world - not just consume it. The initiative of a business with a purpose cannot be materialized more clearly than with these baskets which are produced by a politically displaced and isolated group of Tzotzil women who are lead and represented by a beautiful soul named Zoila Velasco Lopez. Working along side NGOs and a sector of the Mexican government, Biulu Artisan Boutique is helping them to realize economic stability while supporting the community to realize their dream of developing into a self-sustainable Indigenous pueblo.
These baskets are solid, dense, rustic and made sustainably - made using traditional wickering/weaving techniques. Short of sitting on one, it will last throughout the years and provide the sort of rustic bohemian elegance that only 'handmade' can provide. They can be used for fruit, jewelry, soaps or even at dinner time with a doily liner for bread, tortillas etc. The uses are many! Each basket takes one of the ladies about 4 days to make.
The dimensions of each basket is approx. 12" Across x 3.75" Deep x 4" Tall
