Activities

Malò the owner, years ago, learned how to weave baskets from a very clever master of this ancient art, which risk being lost. In the Tuscan county culture, there was a basket maker  in every house, to weave baskets for daily uses in the countryside, such as harvest , fruit, transport. Now most containers are in plastic, and the traditional baskets are almost in the museum.
To weave the baskets we use different materials, the most used being willow , but the speciality of ours are the different natural colours , like cornel-tree, elm, ligustrum and in a special way olive branches, which gave a wonderful grey colour and are very resistant basket .For this we use the prunings of our olive trees fields. In Spring and Autumn we organize courses for small groups of 4/6 people
