Since 2004, Un Pueblo has collaborated with communities that weave extraordinary baskets from fallen pine needles. There are 40 families involved and through the years of building our company we have been invited to their homes, watched their children grow and toured the majestic forests where they reside and work.
Clearing the pine needles from the forest floor lessens the risk of fire in the mountainous region. Through the weaving of baskets, the local communities are profiting from these items rather than cutting down the local trees, not only helping the communities economically but ecologically as well.
