Crafted by the Basket Weavers of Karnataka
This planter basket is made from natural banana plant fiber gathered from the various banana plantations that surround the artisans' village. The fiber is hand rolled into rope used to crochet these durable pieces. Bring natural texture into your space with a new home for your favorite plant!
The artisans from this small cooperative work out of their community center or gather in comfortable places around their village. Aside from the financial benefits that the work brings them, the women benefit from the sense of community their work brings them. From collecting the banana leaves to hand weaving each piece, the various steps involved mean each basket takes several days to make.
The baskets can be rinsed to rid them of dust or stains. Please ensure that they dry thoroughly before storing them to avoid mold.
Should your basket lose its shape it can be dampened and coaxed back into shape with gentle stretching.
