This set of 2 storage baskets has been woven by hand from kaisa grass, which grows in the fields surrounding the weavers’ workshop in Bangladesh. Once the kaisa grass has dried, it can be woven into many all-natural and eco-friendly baskets and hampers. These natural baskets have been woven around with white plastic to add texture, interest, and a cool Scandinavian feel.

Fill these baskets with anything your heart desires. They’re lightweight, versatile, and easily stacked to save space.
