Woven Tortilla Baskets
These colorful tortilleros, or tortilla baskets, are handwoven with colored plastic around a wire frame. Each one has a unique and unrepeatable color combination; we will choose for you and the one you receive may differ from the photo. (Contact us if you'd like to know which colors are currently available.) Pair with a tortilla press and masa harina for a complete maize to table experience!
Baskets measure approx. 9.5" in diameter x 2.75" high. Tortillas should be wrapped in a servilleta or serving cloth inside the basket to keep them soft and warm. Baskets are artisan made in Oaxaca, Mexico and are sourced by Utilitario Mexicano.
A partnership between Libia Moreno and Enrique Arellano, Utilitario Mexicano is dedicated to seeking out simple, useful and beautiful objects, made in Mexico, that have traditionally been part of Mexican life. Their range of products exists somewhere between the industrial and the artisan, and all pieces share the characteristic that they were made with the firm purpose of lasting in both memory and in use.
