Ethical and beautiful storage solutions for your home
Each African woven basket in our Gone Rural collection has been crafted by women basket weavers in the mountain kingdom of Eswatini, so you can be sure of their exceptional quality. And as they’re handmade, no two baskets will be exactly the same.
“Looking at beautiful things is what makes me the happiest.” Ali MacGraw
These delicate Acacia Blush Woven Baskets certainly are not just useful, but also things of beauty. Buy them if you appreciate stunning and durable statement pieces in your home. They also make fantastic housewarming gifts!
Medium: approx. 22cm (diameter)
Large: approx. 30cm (diameter)
To enjoy your basket for many years to come, please ensure you:
Wipe them with a slightly damp cloth to clean them.
Don’t machine wash (this would ruin your basket’s shape).
Don’t leave in direct sunlight (this preserves the beautiful colours for longer).
How the baskets are made
Lunditzi grass is harvested sustainably every year from the Eswatini mountains. The long grass is then dyed in a variety of non-toxic colours and expertly woven, using traditional Swazi plaiting techniques.
