How these baskets are made
These baskets are handwoven from ilala palm and hand-dyed using natural dyes. Brown and natural tones and complex geometric designs characterise this collection, which can take several days to complete due to their extremely complex designs.
Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.
Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.
Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).
