Hazelnut Basket with Leather Straps
This basket is a unique piece handmade by Ignacio, our Asturian artisan. This kind of pieces made with hazelnut tree wood are quite typical in Northern Spain, but it's getting really hard to find them as it's one of the roughest materials to work with. The wood is picked up, toasted in ovens so it dries up a little and gets a little color and then divided in thin leaves that our artisan braids with a little help of water to make them malleable. Every piece takes two to three days to make.
As this is a unique piece, measurements may vary a little to one basket to another.
Measurements: 27 x 27 x 16 cm
