The Kaisa Table Basket - Saree Wrap is a great way to store or display items in a stylish and functional way. Its small size and lightweight design take up minimal space and are perfect for organizing a variety of items.
Kaisa is a wild grass that is used in Bangladeshi basket-making. Our baskets also use upcycled sarees from the garment industry. Saree is wrapped around a few coils at the top to finish off these table baskets.
Small Basket: Dia=25 (top) H=7cm
A sustainable fiber, Kaisa grows along the riverbanks in Bangladesh. When Kaisa dries, it changes color from natural light green to a pale tan.
The Fair Trade artisans bunch the Kaisa strands and coil the strand on top of each other - to make the basket. As the coils are made, they are bound together with upcycled saree and strips of palm leaves.
These table baskets are great as simple storage for nic-nacs, coins, keys, and other odds and ends.
These artisans are from the northern region of Bangladesh - Rangpur. The purchase of these baskets provides a sustainable and reliable source of income to support their families and communities and helps Orphans Aid International fundraise.
