Moisés Hernández is a designer from Tiamacazapa, Mexico, whose woven baskets are made to reinterpret the traditional art to incorporate modern features.

She does this by weaving her bags and baskets with unconventional materials and adding metallic copper features. In doing so, Moisés Hernández makes the products more profitable amongst a wider range of consumers, as the baskets are made to be more unique and bags more stylish.

The woven baskets and bags are made from palm which is then dyed using recycled pigments to limit waste and create less of an impact on the environment. Baskets with beautiful gold material were created in response to a shortage of water in the area as well, with its construction not requiring the substance to produce dyes.
