Baskets from Mexico

If your passing through Barcelona this summer it's worth having a look at the small but well selected exhibition 'La creacion en el arte popular mexicano' at the Centre d'Artesania Catalunya. Alongside textiles, ceramics and metalwork there are some beautiful baskets made with a variety of natural fibres. Exhibition continues until the 4th September 2016.
