Add some earthy touch with this handwoven multi-purpose basketÂ made from grass. This rustic basket is great for storing fresh vegetables or serving as a countertop catch-all. Perfect gift for a friend who appreciates earthy and traditional crafts.
Made of pure organic materials â€“ Date tree leaves (Khejur leaves) and a special type of locally available grass, known as Babui (locally known as Kashi Grass also).â€œBabuiâ€ is a special type of grass which used to be cultivated in Purulia and few other districts of West Bengal. The white flat inner layer is extracted from dry khejur leaves and used as a thread to tie the grass and create different type of artefacts. The beautiful designs built with the contrast of the dried green grass and white leaf thread comes in varieties.Â
Due to the handmade nature of these baskets, each one is slightly different which we believe adds to the charm and value of each piece.
