Plant Holders

Tio Antonio’s Macramé Workshop was realized to create employment opportunities for women in high-risk situations. Each macramé piece, whether decorative or designed for holding planters, is crafted entirely by hand using 100% cotton thread and naturally derived dyes.  Each piece is completely original and reflects the enormous pride our artisans take in their work.
