Nene Handmade Tree Bark Hanging Basket


Absolutely in aw of these handmade nene hanging baskets from Mexico. These baskets have been used as baby carriers by indigenous communities in Central Mexico since pre-Hispanic times – a tradition that continues in present day. The top strap is worn across the forehead, so that parents can carry their little ones on their backs, while getting their chores done.

We love to use these stunning pieces as wall art, a holder for magazines or dried flowers, in a bathroom or kitchen for hand + dish towels ...the list goes on! Available in three sizes.

Mini: Approximately 28cm wide x 16cm high

Medium: Approximately 50cm wide x 30cm high

Large: Approximately 65cm wide x 35cm high

Every piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind, so the shape, size and colour will vary per piece.
