Patra Basket




We love the airy and easy-going vibe of the Patra basket. Handwoven from sun-dried, golden water grass into a set of three nesting sizes, they make the perfect home for our plant babies. Super lightweight and sturdy, it also makes for a stylish waste paper basket.

As for us, we’re dreaming of wooden shelves stocked with old books and a few of these as accents, instantly adding a bit of texture and charming personality to any setup.

Crafted in a historic riverside town in India, by a collective of 150 women weavers, each basket takes 2 days to weave. Made from start-to-finish in a fair-trade environment.

*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.
