White palm has been used in the western part of the Mediterranean since time immemorial and its many uses have given it many names; garballó, margalló, European palm, palm and an infinity of other terms are attributed to this small white palm, which usually doesn't reach more than two meters in height.
In the Balearic Islands, and specifically in Mallorca, it has been used to make everyday items from sunhats to work in the fields, for fishing, walking, basketware and transport, as well as fruit bowls, wine racks, purses, wallets and even carpets or shopping carts.
We want to tell you about white palm, which can only be collected on a few days in June, and the special treatment and love it is given throughout the long preparation process; cut in strips the same length, boiled in water baths, dried at specific temperatures, sulfur bath..., to make it resistant and uniform, and to give it that beautiful and pure colour it is so well loved for.
The few master artisans to work this marvellous material on the island tend to be women. There are so many baskets available now, you see them everywhere, but we know how to see the difference. Most of the more affordable baskets on the market are made from ordinary palm.
From Destiu once again we bet on traditional, autochthonous products from the Balearic Islands, and handmade and natural designs, and would like to present these two models made and designed with heaps of love and attention to detail by artisan hands in Capdepera.
Due to the scarcity of people who know how to work this material well, and the amount of work it requires, we have decided to only make 10 units of each model, making them UNIQUE AND EXCLUSIVE pieces.
