The Trio of Round Grass Baskets is natural way to collect and curate your favourite belongings while introducing woven texture into your home. Handwoven from pathi grass, these lightweight baskets are ideal to use as hold-all's throughout your home; to display your decorative objects; or to wrangle small children's toys.
Pathi Grass is a fibrous plant that produces a very fine natural weaving material. We developed the open-weave pattern found on the sides of the baskets with our NGO partner and their master weaver when we visited Bangladesh in 2019. To achieve this pattern, artisans practice a combination of weaving flat and twisted pathi grass. The base of the baskets is a traditional solid herringbone weaving pattern.
The artisans who make these baskets have been basket weaving with pathi grass and other natural fibres for many years. They are based in a beautiful tropical village laden with coconut palms and work together in a community Fair Trade workspace. The NGO that supports this groups of artisans ensures they receive regular work, safe working conditions and fair wages.
