Description + -
The Litoral Collection has travelled from isolated parts of Argentina known as Litoral zones, here members of the Wichí indigenous community hand-knit with fibres extracted from the chaguar, a native plant similar to aloe vera. Since time immemorial, they have used this technique to make bags for collecting fruit, fishing nets and traditional costumes. The durable, textured threads are coloured with natural dyes extracted from roots, seeds and fruits. Abstract designs are inspired by markings found on birds and snakes, and were traditionally used as talismans for spiritual protection.
Handmade by skilled artisans, these baskets have been sourced for a fair price in partnership with an Argentinean social enterprise. When you purchase a basket, you’re helping Pampa trace the map that connects Argentina’s talented artisans with the global community.
These are all handmade items and should be handled with care. Do not wet your bag, basket or dolls as these are woven with plant-based threads and could be damage when getting wet.
