Each of these baskets are made using a mix of water hyacinth and palm leaf to ensure that the baskets are unique, sustainable and long lasting.
How these Baskets are made
Made using a mix of water hyacinth and cob leaf:
Due to its durability and brown color, the water hyacinth is one of the most popular materials for home & living products. The plants are very robust and can multiply rapidly within a few weeks with serious consequences for nature. Because of this, the water hyacinth is considered a weed in many areas. Harvesting and processing into long-lasting products is an advantage for both parties.
Corn on the cob leaf
The leftover leaf of the corn cob plant is first dried and thus recycled for the production of our baskets. Because of its strength, durability and color, this fiber is ideal.
Fair trade benefits to artisans
They are made into favorite parts from natural materials using traditional craftsmanship. The people work under fair conditions and are proud of their craft.
