Fair-trade sourced and hand-woven in Africa in the traditional Ghanaian style, these cheery, sturdy floor baskets are made from sweet-smelling, sustainably harvested elephant grass. With two hardy side handles and a generous flat bottom, these are a favorite stylish corraller with infinite uses. Shoes, blankets, towels, laundry, toys, babies, kittens, puppies, OTHER BASKETS...you name it, this stores it. We usually use this basket sitting on the floor—because it looks so darn lovely doing it—but it is seriously rugged and can be lifted and toted at will. 22 1/2" around x 12" tall.
Take care: These baskets are made to be used and loved. They can take a...mauling and keep on hauling. If your basket gets misshapen, or starts to lost its crisp flat bottom edge after the 1,000th load of laundry, it's easy to re-form it. Simply submerge the basket in water for 5-10 minutes (at which point the sweet smell of the grass will waft around you, a nice side effect), remove, reshape, and let dry completely on a towel.
