ESPARTO (Stipa tenacissima)The etymology of the word esparto references the terms for strength and resistance. When we at Let’s Pause talk about looking for that which is authentic we mean going back to the roots, to the very essence. Like rediscovering materials that grow in the wild as well as age-old techniques that have been employed in crafts since ancient times.
The esparto is worked by the expert hands of our craftsmen and turned into lamp shades, rugs, baskets, chaise-longues and bed boards. Four different techniques are employed, passed down in the same way as the trades of old, under the tutorship of a master, imparting the knowledge little by little. This basket is woven with the capacho technique. Typically used stitching technique for fruit baskets, woven containers used in olden times by olive oil mills for pressing the oil.
