These baskets will work perfectly as fruit holders, catch-alls, or centerpieces for your dining table. Nicaraguan artisan Tamara Pereira handcrafts them in sturdy Moctezuma pine needles mixed with a colorful array of polyester strings that contrast beautifully with the fibers' neutral colors. The thick dried needles of the Montezuma pine have been used for millennia by the peoples of Mexico and Central America to craft baskets and other wares. Tamara's background as an architect has helped her bring a breath of freshness to this centuries-old tradition.
