Pretty, robust and versatile, this elegant Twisted Weave Pera Basket is made from Chuspata, a natural palm fiber that hails from the shores of Lake Pátzcuaro. Expertly handcrafted by Michoacán’s finest artisans, it is the perfect storage tool or decorative piece your home is missing.

Undergoing a lengthy process, the Chuspata palm is first dried in the sun, then moistened for a couple of hours so that it regains its flexibility, then deftly woven to perfection by the extremely talented hands of the artisans.

    The brainchild of architect and designer Karina Herrera, Albaricoque was born in Michoacán from a passion for innovative Mexican design and a will to offer a piece of hand-woven Mexico in your space. Products are handwoven with chuspata, a reed growing near Lake Pátzcuaro and harvested by the artisans of Ihuatzio. With a complex process of desiccation and rehydration, the artisans prepare the fibers to weave baskets, lamps, and furniture with their magical hands.
