Large Seagrass Belly Basket with Handles from Vietnam.
Seagrass is a plant that grows entirely underwater. They are named seagrass because most species have long green, grass-like leaves. Dried stalks of seagrass are hand twined and used for making goods like baskets and mats. This product is made from locally available renewable seagrass.
Basket is hand woven with natural and black seagrass to show a zig zag pattern. Ideal for use as a storage bin, planter, or wastebasket. Basket measures 11" in diameter at the top, 12" in diameter at the belly and 11" in height. For use as a planter basket, place a dish under the plant pot to catch the excess water from the pot. This is a handcrafted item, so the product may vary slightly from images in color and craft.
Basket is made by artisans in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
