Grass Basket

Regular price $34.95 Sale

The Tall Trio of Round Grass Baskets is a natural way to collect and store your belongings while introducing woven texture into your home. Handwoven from pathi grass, these lightweight baskets are ideal to use as catch-all's throughout your home; for your favourite potted plants; or as storage in the bedroom, bathroom or playroom.

Pathi Grass is a fibrous plant that produces a very fine natural weaving material. We developed the open-weave pattern found on the sides of the baskets with our NGO partner and their master weaver when we visited Bangladesh in 2019. To achieve this pattern, artisans practice a combination of weaving flat and twisted pathi grass. The base of the baskets is a traditional solid herringbone weaving pattern.

The artisans who make these baskets have been basket weaving with pathi grass and other natural fibres for many years. They are based in a beautiful tropical village laden with coconut palms and work together in a community Fair Trade workspace. The NGO that supports this groups of artisans ensures they receive regular work, safe working conditions and fair wages.
