Shopping Basket - Plain
A stylish and completely natural handwoven shopping basket.
This shopping basket has been hand woven from kaisa grass with date palm wrapped around it.
Baskets are commonly made from kaisa because of the sturdy nature of the grass, making this basket robust enough for everyday shopping and ideal for loading up with bread, cheese and veggies at the local farmers market. Alternatively it would look stunning in the corner of a bathroom filled with rolled up towels or a stash basket for yarn.

Who made this?
Valerian Handicrafts is a fairtrade organisation that helps women in Bangladesh earn income to cover basic living costs by working and sharing together as one community. Most producers are landless, so handicrafts provide their sole source of income and enable them to educate their children.
