Carasau Bread Basket

The artefact

These wide-bottomed wickerwork baskets woven using the weft and warp technique are perfect for storing carasau bread typical of local tradition. Made with varying plant species, they are available in two versions: with and without the lid and are characterised by the evocative scent of myrtle used in the basketwork. Entirely handcrafted, they are available in different sizes.
