Kaisa Grass Baskets from Bangladesh


A collection of kaisa grass baskets from Bangladesh. Kaisa is a sturdy wild grass that grows along the riverbanks in Bangladesh. When kaisa grass is dried, it changes color from natural light green to tan. The dried kaisa grass is woven to make baskets.

Each basket is hand coiled with a plastic ribbon to create a modern pattern. The small basket measures 9" in height and 9 1/2" in diameter, medium basket measures 10" in height and 11" in diameter, and large basket measures 11" in height and 13" in diameter. Basket with lid measures 14" in height and 12 1/2" in diameter. This is a handcrafted item, so products may vary slightly in color and craft.
