This gorgeous and practical laundry basket with lid is tightly hand woven from kaisa grass wrapped in date palm. The basket starts out a natural light green colour and as it dries becomes lightly tanned. Baskets are commonly made from kaisa because of the sturdy nature of the grass, making these baskets robust enough for everyday use. Handmade by skilled artisans working with Valerian Handicrafts, one of our fair trade partners in Bangladesh.
The women artisans of Valerian come from six villages across rural Bangladesh. They gather to work together in village spaces, sharing and learning together, making intricate and beautiful baskets from natural environmentally friendly resources. These ethnic minority artisans increase their self-worth and reduce discrimination through the generation of income from their traditional skills.Read more
