HANDMADE IN AMAZONAS, BRAZIL


Introducing the Wii Baskets: simplicity at its finest. Ideal for organizing even the most substantial piles of toys, blankets, or everyday clutter.

Crafted with meticulous care, each basket is a masterpiece that takes weeks to complete. They are skillfully handmade by talented Yanomami women in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. The Wii basket is an elongated, tightly woven piece with a rounded bottom. Woven using titica vine, it features intricate details of black fungus threads or is adorned with natural paint.

For the Yanomami people, the wɨɨ basket serves as the vessel for gathering produce and crops from the fields. It also aids in carrying firewood, essential for cooking and warming the communal house during the night.
