Mayan Hands' artisan partners named this basket "Chumil," the Kaqchikel word for "star." Skillfully woven from longleaf pine needles, pajón (a native grass in Guatemala) and raffia, with a central star design rendered in shades of green. This basket is beautiful for display but also entirely functional.
Measures approximately: 12" (L) x 10.5" (W) x 2" (H)
