To design the palm fibre Dhali Baskets, we were inspired by an ancient Egyptian basket spotted in a museum several years ago. The beautiful curvaceous shape and woven texture are perfect for shelf, console or vanity styling. Available in three sizes, group two or three together for functional storage that creates a cohesive visual story throughout your home.

Featuring fitted lids, the Dhali Baskets are ideal for concealing those everyday items that you want to keep hidden, yet close at hand. Consider them for storage of skincare and beauty products in the bathroom; for coffee pods and packaged food in the kitchen; styled on a coffee table or shelf in the living room; to hold keys on a console in the entryway; or for storing small toys and craft materials. 

Handmade by fair trade artisans in a village community of Bangladesh, each Dhali Basket is assembled by bundling kaisa grass; wrapping them in fine strips of date palm fibre and coiling and weaving them into shape. The women who make these pieces work from home and a genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures they are paid fairly for their time and skills, among many other benefits.

Looking to match the Small Dhali with other baskets from our palm fibre collection for a cohesive styling story in your home? Try the Dhali in Large or Medium, the larger and taller Mira Basket in Small or Large, the low round Jala Basket or the smaller Buna Baskets.

    - To clean, we suggest you shake or vacuum them to dislodge dirt or dust particles.
    - These baskets are robust and will withstand some condensation however we do not recommend placing wet object in the baskets.
    - For water-based spills, blot with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible and allow them to dry. Do not rub stains or spills from your basket, as this may spread the stain. Please note that oil-based or brightly coloured spills/dyes may stain and may not be easily removed - we recommend trying the above methods with a gentle eco-friendly cleaner.
