The chiqui chiqui woven cylinder container is simply exquisite and useful to contain it all! We love using it for a grand arrangement with foliage or as a beautiful laundry basket for those delicate clothes that are to be washed by hand. 

Ana Gladys Aponte leads Asosaricana, a group of 15-women weavers who have learned the art of basket weaving from their mothers and are committed to passing their skills down to their own children and future generations. Asosaricana is the name given to the commercial organization they have created in order to keep this cultural expression alive.
