May 7, 2015 - Beautiful! Use it every day.

February 25, 2015 - Great trivet. Would order again.

February 2, 2015 - Very colorful and well-made. I purchased several to go along with my real estate company's housewarming gift of a personalized cutting board.

January 31, 2015 - This was much nicer than I expected it to be. Nice and solidly built - I anticipate it will hold up well. It also smells really nice. I wish I had bought a bunch more when they were on sale! :)

May 20, 2014 - I love that these are eco-friendly, assist women artisans and are also very colourful. They are on the smaller side, but are good value for the money.

Artisan: Pine needle artisans of El Cerro, Nicaragua

Artisan Pine needle artisans of El Cerro, Nicaragua

Nicaragua's state of Chinandega lies along the Pacific Ocean, with miles of beaches rising into dry coastal hills covered with pines.

The women of El Cerro, a tiny community near the town of Cinco Puntos, have turned these pine trees' dropped needles into a creative craft. Under the leadership of Yeiba Guevara, 30 women gather and clean the dropped pine needles, then weave them together with threads and ribbons to create baskets, boxes, and even magazine holders, hats, and purses!

The weaving process is simple, but the execution and skill involved truly make each piece a work of artistry. Through selling their pine needle crafts, the women are able to bolster their families' incomes and send their children to school. The artisans constantly develop new designs to appeal to international audiences, ensuring that El Cerro's coastal pines will continue to provide more than just shade to the people who live there.
