Jawar Basket



Meticulously handcrafted from buttery golden, dried water grass topped off with intricately braided handles, the Jawar basket is all about thoughtful detail. In a shallow yet roomy size it's perfect to stash towels, candles, crafts and all those little things we love. Style them on your counter (looks especially cute filled with fruit) or as a shelf accent for some interesting visual texture.

Crafted in a historic riverside town in India, by a collective of 150 women weavers, each basket takes 3 days to weave. Made entirely in a fair-trade co-operative.

*Water hyacinth is a beautiful river grass, but its rapid, dense growth is choking the river ways, displacing indigenous flora and fauna. By using it to make baskets, the weaving community helps protect the river, while generating a source of income.
