  • Description

    Wide kaisa storage basket features a fitted lid with knob. 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. Later growth of kaisa is thicker and stronger, and is used to make fences in the villages. The cut kaisa grass is sundried and cleaned, then woven into baskets.

  • Fabulous basket!

    . . . . .

    This basket was recently donated to a fundraiser I was working on and I intend to purchase this basket not only for myself, but as gifts for the holidays. It is a beautifully crafted basket with beautiful variations in color and is extremely sturdy. Perfect to hide children's toys, as a catch-all for other items or simply as a decorative piece. Not only is it well-priced but being a Fair Trade item, the purchase actually helps women in the developing world.

  • My Favorite Basket

    . . . . .

    I own a lot of fair trade baskets. I absolutely love decorating my home with them as well as using them for various tasks. I recently purchased this magnificent basket...I'm so glad I did! It is, hands down, my very favorite. The colors are beautiful, the craftsmanship impeccable, and the size is large enough to make a statement if used for décor (and it can hold an awful lot if you want to use it for storage while it improves the beauty of the room at the same time). I just can't recommend this basket enough. Hats off to the artisan who so skillfully crafted it!
