Decorate your home with this beautiful handmade Teardrop Basket! Lightweight and delicately woven, this basket makes a beautiful display piece, or can be used to store various treasures!

The Peace Basket artisans partner with an expert bamboo weaver who learned from his father before him.  The bamboo weaver creates the inner frame for the basket, and then the grass weaver creates the beautiful exterior. This is a two-stage, two-artisan basket!

The artisans then color the grasses using a banana flower as an applicator. The flower’s blue sap bonds with the soot from the bottom of a cooking pot to color the grasses black.  The rust colour comes from the dust of local rock, applied to the grasses with the banana flower.

Care Instructions: Dust gently with a smooth, dry cloth.
