NEW PRODUCT! We have never had these bowls before and we think they will sell fast!

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 fundraiser.
