Handwoven from sustainable elephant grass by women weavers in Ghana, these versatile baskets are durable and long-lasting due to the way they’re crafted. To make the grass more pliable, weavers split each fiber lengthwise, then twist strands into a two-ply rope that’s either dyed or left in its natural state. These are crafted from undyed natural straw.
Available in small and large.
Fair Trade Certified.
Material: Undyed natural straw
Dimensions: Small: 18.5"D x 9"H Large: 20"D x 10.5"H
I am always hesitant to order items online, which I have not seen in person - especially when I have a specific use in mind for them. SO glad to say that I couldn’t be happier with the size, quality, and unique structure of this basket. Bloomist is my new favorite source for grass woven goods.
