Made from dried elephant grass, dyed using a combination of natural occurring dyes from the earth and fabric dyes to achieve the vibrant colours and patterns recognizable throughout African culture.

It's Many Uses:

Storage baskets, market baskets, fruit baskets, toy baskets, shopping baskets, picnic baskets, beach baskets – the uses are endless!

Many basket weavers go by sight when weaving different sizes and so consequently we get a range in sizing.
