Our traditional Sicilian 'coffa' basket is handcrafted using local palmanana straw and adorned with black pompoms, mirrors and buttons.
Handmade by an older generation of artisans in Sicily. A basket weaver near Palermo heads to the mountains to collect the palma nana straw and then weaves the baskets by hand for us. The baskets then travel to the east coast of Sicily where they are adorned with pom poms and mirrors in the ancient Sicilian tradition. The adornments are sewed on, stitch by stitch – never glued on as you will find with other baskets. It takes three days to make each basket and there are less than a handful or artisans in Sicily who still produce these baskets in the traditional manner.
Please note:All the baskets are made by hand so colourways may vary from the picture.
