Description
 
These beautiful coiled junco baskets are from La Arada, a small mountain village near Santa Barbara, Honduras. The village is known for its female artisans who specialize in producing items made from the indigenous junco reed. An arduous 9-stage dying and preparation process is necessary to prepare the junco, but the women who do the weaving are glad for the work and take great pride in their skills. The women have formed a co-op called “Promoción La Arada” hoping to bring income directly in to their poor farming village.
