For generations, Guerrero's artisans have been weaving palm leaves into baskets, bags, and hats. They have preserved the art of bringing this material to life through ancestral technique, and they carry on the traditions boiling, dying, hand-braiding, and sewing the palm leaves into works of art. It can take years for artisans to master their technique, and each artisan can hand weave 1 to 2 baskets a day.
