The Rolled Basketry has 2 main components “Fique” (variety plant of the agave family) and “Straw” which constitutes the “soul” or structure of the basket, the process consists of gathering the materials from the natural environment and processing the Fique until a malleable fiber is obtained.

 

And through refinery the fiber is naturally colored and sorted from fine to coarse. The straw is then picked and sorted by length and flexibility, made into “bundles” to get ready for the Fique weaving in spiral motion with the help of a thick needle, which originally was a animal bone carved needle.
