Introducing our exquisitely crafted Baby-Carrying Basket, handwoven from resilient Buriti Fiber. For generations, the Xavante, known as the Auwe Uptabi or "true people," have entrusted their newborns to the embrace of this basket, a testament to its legacy of comfort and care.

Beyond its cultural significance, this basket stands as a symbol of ergonomic excellence. Lightweight and weather-resistant, it offers a seamless fusion of form and function. Picture yourself traversing the sprawling landscapes of the Brazilian Cerrado forest, cradling your precious one in a vessel designed to accompany you on your journey, just as it has for countless generations.

Every piece of artisanship is 100% handmade and one-of-a-kind. The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the picture, due to the uniqueness of each product.
