Reclaimed Sari Handle Basket


A bright basket uniquely handcrafted of kaisa grass decorated with recycled cotton sari fabric. Built-in handles. Kaisa is a sturdy wild grass. Artisans cut it from riverbanks during the monsoon season, leaving the roots for the next year’s crop. Later growth of kaisa is thicker and stronger, and used to make fences in the villages.

Love this basket! It is large, but sturdy and stylish enough you can leave it out and it looks like it is part of your decor. Highly recommended!

Beautiful sturdy laundry basket. Nice large capacity. Just wish I got the blue in the photo, but the red is quite nice as well.
