Empowerment and artisanal excellence are the cornerstones at the foundation of Makaua, a family-owned and women-led company that produces woven products for the home. Handmade by a community of 50 families in a low-income region of Mexico, Makaua employs over 100 people who earn a living hand-weaving palms while staying at home to care for their families. Elegant and egalitarian, the resulting collection of baskets, placemats and poufs provides your home with timeless pieces that tell the story of the people who crafted them.

Creating products that connect nature, culture, and tradition, Makaua effectively combines artistry with utility. This hamper is one example: Crafted from soft, pliable palm, its subtle conical shape offers plenty of space to hold your laundry. Its natural upper portion is nicely contrasted by a pop of color at the base. Simple and attractive—no need to tuck your hamper out of site any longer.

The baskets are hand-woven and hand-dyed so there may be slight variations in color.

Whether you want to use it for storage or as a decorative accent, the Revistero by Makaua injects a refreshing twist on a classic basket. A statement piece in its own right, this beautiful palm basket handcrafted by Makaua's community of artisan weavers in Mexico offers strength and durability juxtaposed by its lightweight and airy style. The Revistero's sturdy side handles allow you to conveniently transport your basket throughout the house, indoors and out, perhaps filled with books for fireside reading or alfresco essentials for an afternoon in the park.
