Carla, Lonchera Basket Bag

A Lonchera is a Peruvian basket that schoolchildren use as a lunch box. This natural square-cut basket has a bast lock and two handles. Great for all types of storage.

The Peruvian baskets are woven by the women cooperative AMARTEMM in Medio Mundo (Huacho) and finished by weavers in Lima. The reed is extracted from lagoons. The lagoon in Medio Mundo is one of Peru's most important wetlands. The drying of the reed takes up to 5 days. Only then it is collected and brought to the weavers. The women need up to two days to weave a basket!

  • Reed (Junco)
  • Approx: H22 cm x W24 cm (Plus Handles 20 cm) 

NOTE: Please don't put too much weight in the baskets since it's a handmade product.

All our products are handmade and may have slight imperfections, which make them even more beautiful and charming.
