Mexican Artisan

Palm Tortillero Basket


Why We Love It
We have fond memories of family dinners where we passed the tortillero around the table. Who says your tortillero can’t be modern, sustainable, and positively impact indigenous communities in Mexico? Not us. We love the look, functionality, and story behind this uniquely handmade tortilla warming basket.

These baskets are handmade with all-natural ingredients by a family-run workshop in the Mixtec region of Oaxaca. These artisans harvest palm leaves thoughtfully to ensure the plants are not over-harvested and can be around to benefit future generations. They then dry and braid the palm and eventually sew it into shape as either placemats, rugs, or baskets. This form of palm weaving employs many members of this small agricultural community and artisans working to pass down their techniques to the next generation so that the artistry is not lost.

Wipe with a clean, dry cloth. Since each placemat is made from natural fibers, please keep away from water and damp items to maintain its look and quality.
