Bora Basket with Chocolates
Bora Braided Basket with Franceschi Dark Chocolates
This beautiful box braided with Bora fiber (also known as Aquatic Lily) is a demonstration of the aesthetic sensibility of the Warao. Besides generating a constant income for more than 300 woman artisans from 8 indigenous communities in the Orinoco Delta, this work involves removing thousands of Bora plants from the rivers as the plants absorb large quantities of oxygen from the water. Removing the Bora plants and repurposing them ultimately maintains the fragile ecosystem of the area while also providing a positive impact to the community in more ways than one.
Manufactured by Franceschi Chocolate, this Bora Basket is a unique piece that holds a unique collection of fine chocolates made from selections of ancestral Venezuelan cacao Trinitarian Origin that combines the aromas, textures and flavors from the different regions of Venezuela.
Various pieces of Franceschi Chocolates's portfolio have been recognized for several consecutive years by the International Chocolate Awards, in the Plain/Origin Dark Chocolate Bars category.
