Artisan Hand Crocheted Fique Agave Baskets with Handles
Ethically and Sustainably sourced from Colombian Artisan and Indigenous women-owned businesses
Casa Bonita's Hand Crocheted Fique Agave Baskets are handcrafted by our master Artisan, Luz Marina. She skilfully creates traditional and contemporary colour combinations and designs, that can be enjoyed and used to style your home, workplace or a special space.
These exclusive Fique baskets are not only beautiful and practical but are also multifunctional, and can be utilised as a sturdy handbag, market shopping bag, fun beach bag, planter basket or a stylish storage bag.
The Fique fibre threads are made from the native South American Agave plants and are completely sustainable, as the base of the plant lives for over 20 years and is left untouched to avoid deforestation.
Highly skilled Artisans, utilise traditional and cultural techniques to create the robust threads from these Fique Agave plants.
Traditionally used to make the popular Colombian coffee sacks, Artisans developed a detailed process to transform this premium thread into unique and beautiful accessories and homewares.
