Eguzkilore Hamper | Original Gourmet Packs | Basque Products Packs

The most original Gastronomic and Cultural gift from the Basque Country


The legend of Basque mythology says that Amalur, mother Earth, gave her children the sun (eguzki) and the moon (ilargia - dead light), to defend themselves against the evils. 

But on moonless nights these evils entered their homes and took their children. So Amalur gave them Eguzkilore, the flower of the sun, to put at the entrance to his house. 

And the evil had to count the hairs on the leaves of the flower to enter, but there were so many and it took so long time that it dawned and he had to leave, leaving the house protected.

Hundreds of houses in the Basque Country still maintain this ancient tradition.

Eguzkilore Hamper

In the pack you will find a seed of the eguzkilore so that you can plant it and take care of it in the planter that includes the gift. 

We will explain the history of the eguzkilore and brief instructions on how to plant it and maintain the flower.

In addition to the one who receives the gift, we will tell them that we not only want them to take care of the Eguzkilore but we also want to take care of them, following some brief instructions: You have to take the tools that come with the planter and dig a Little.
