The vivid orange, its shape and the manner in which the handle has been integrated, are all elements that make the Asopafit naranja fruit basket a splendid example of the Associations' design skills and artistry.
Woven by the Asopafit Association of weavers, who are creating sustainable employment within the greater community through their traditional weaving skills. The Association is led by Doña Blanca Lilia Leguizamo, whose family has been weaving traditionally for 5 generations. Her mission is to continue strengthening this art and ensure it is passed along for generations to come.
