Kaisa Swirl Baskets - Set of 3

We like a lot these set of three kaisa baskets. They are great as general storage, kids toys, laundry and whatever you need storage for.

Our artisans are from the northern region of Bangladesh - Rangpur. The purchase of these baskets providesa sustainable and reliable source of income to support their families and communities.

Kaisa is a wild grass that is used in Bangladeshi basket-making. Our baskets also use sarees that we upcycle from the garment industry. Saree is wrapped around a few coils at the top to finish-off these baskets.

A sustainable fibre, kaisa grows along the riverbanks in Bangladesh. When kaisa dries, it changes color from natural light green to a pale tan. It is widely used in Bangladesh but availability in Australia is limited.

 

 

Our Fair Trade artisans bunch the kaisa strands and coil the gathered strand on top of each other - to make the basket. As the coils are made, they are bound together with upcycled saree and palm leaf.

 

Large Basket: Dia=40 H=52cm; RRP=$65
Medium Basket: Dia=34 H=46cm; RRP=$45
Small Basket:  DIa=28 H=40cm; RRP=$35
