Description

A pannier, traditionally called esportón, capacho or serón is a large container or basket that was formerly used for harvesting or storing grain, wheat, barley, millet or maize… To sew it, the artisan used palm rope. María Hernández also used several tools to make this Canarian palm pannier, such as a wooden needle to sew the plaited palm leaves, an iron needle for the tomizas (palm rope), a small needle to prepare the palm leaves, a knife and scissors and of course her hands, as the traditional craft is handmade.
