WOVEN WOOD BASKETS & OTHER CREATIONS
We are glad to display unique hand crafted woven wood baskets and other original creations that follow the traditional style used in Sicily.
Man has always observed nature and drew inspiration from it noting how the branches of some plants or trees tended to intertwine with each other.
The first basket makers were prehistoric men who emulated nature and created the first objects that had the function of carrying food and storing it.
Our ancestors used to make baskets inside the family circle, during wintertime, as bad weather made fieldwork impossible.
Today, only a few expert artisans remain to bend and braid natural materials simply because of their passion for one of the most time consuming crafts ever.
Our artisans create wonderful handmade items with different materials such as rattan found on riversides of the Anapo River, willow stems, and olive branches using only their hands and a pruner.
Since these unique artworks come out from the Sicilian trees, they are entirely natural.
You will bring at home Mother Nature’s good vibes and the charming Sicilian heritage!
