Natural Kaisa Woven Basket
Made from natural kaisa grass.
Contemporary charm from Bangladesh. This basket bowl is hand-woven from natural kaisa grass. Makers cut the wild grass from riverbanks during the monsoon season, leaving the roots for the next year’s crop. The cut kaisa grass is sundried and cleaned, then woven into baskets. Later growth of kaisa is thicker and stronger, and used to make fences in the villages.
