Wicker

A handmade equipment similar to a basket, usually made of wicker or taquara. It is used to transport several types of products, such as fruits, vegetables, bread, poultry, fish, meat etc. Usually, it is carried on the head, shoulders or using a thin rafter. It could be used on the manual coffee harvest or to transport the dry bean to the storehouses.
This equipment was donated to Museu do Café by Ronan Danilo Rezende, commercial director of the Coffee Farmers Cooperative of Zona de Varginha, on 2004.
