The inspiration for this impressive “roof” in ALÀBRIGA´s garden is traditional Catalan basket weaving. This craft is still very popular in the area, though many contemporary designs favour decorative aesthetics over function. Catalan basket makers see it as their mission to preserve their craft, especially when it can be turned into stunning design ideas. Basket weaving festival is held annually in Salt.
