Blue Chevron Kaisa Hamper


Keep clothes tucked away in this hamper woven from natural kaisa grass and plastic. Kaisa is a sturdy wild grass that dries from its natural light green to a pale, almost tan color. Artisans cut kaisa grass from riverbanks during the monsoon season, leaving the roots for the next year’s crop.

Best deal you can find! It's 55cm high, 40cm wide without the lid, and with the lid it's 78cm high. The colour is a light turquoise rather than the baby-blue shown in the picture, but I think it's more beautiful that way. It seems quite sturdy and should wear well. I found the packaging it came in the most troublesome. The cardboard box was huge. I had to pick it up from the post office, and couldn't fit it into my the back or front seat of my Honda Civic. In the end, I had to open the box in the middle of the parking lot, take the basket out, and break down the box flat. Three separate people witnessed this and offered to help me. The box was much bigger than the basket, and there was a lot of packing paper filling the gaps. Perhaps, Ten Thousand Villages could use a smaller box next time. If not for the debacle with the packaging, I would have given 5 stars.
