Details

Cestino Franca is a handmade basket from Puglia. She is 25 cm wide and 28 cm high. Dimensions may differ a few centimetres because it is a handmade product. Franca comes with a dust bag.

 

History
Around 1880 the women in Salento started with the art of weaving by hand the ‘giunco’ to make baskets for everyday use to contain olives and cheese. In critical periods these products were a valuable medium of exchange. Unfortunately, around 100 years later the interest in woven reeds declined because of the advent of plastic. At this time there are not a lot of women left who dedicate themselves to the art of manual weaving and the sector is on the verge of disappearance.

Luckily we found one of the few women who still practice the art of manual weaving the giunco and we created a collection of bags and baskets. With this collection, we want to invest in this art and give a stage to the women who created this valuable part of Apulian history. That is why all the styles in our collection are named after Italian women. By buying their creation you support the tradition and help us rebuild the industry. That is how we maintain Apulian craftmanship.

This collection will consist of small drops because we respect our makers and nature. It takes a few days to create a basket, so we want to give our makers enough time to create. The size of the collection also depends on how many giunco there is each year. Sometimes we have a smaller harvest and then we adapt to that. The items in the collection can change every drop. We try to repeat the popular styles, but also let our makers create what they feel like making.

I ordered a handmade basket, linen tea towels and a tablecloth. I am so happy with everything. The details are stunning. You can see that it is made with a lot of love. It gives a Mediterranean feel to my home and it really needed that. The tablecloth comes with a dustbag that is super handy for storage.

The quality of the tablecloth is even better than expected and I already had high expectations. The fabrics, prints and details are so beautiful. I am really impressed. The owners have such a sense of style that a product also brings a piece of aesthetics into your home. It is beautifully packaged and dispatched quickly. I am a big fan of this brand and I will definitely be expanding my collection in the near future.

I ordered 3 different olive oils: the normal one in a ceramic vase, the prime selection and the rosemary one. This is the best olive oil I have ever tasted. I would recommend the prime selection olive oil to anyone who likes the sharp taste.

I am so happy with the Maria handbag. You can see that a lot of work went into it. It is definitely an one-of-a-kind bag and I love that. I receive a lot of compliments when I wear it. The bag comes with a beautiful dustbag and the shipping is fast.
