Set of Three Seagrass Baskets from Vietnam


Set of Three Seagrass Baskets 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. Locally available and renewable seagrass is used to make these products.

Baskets are hand woven with natural and black seagrass to show a geometric pattern. Small basket measures 9" in diameter and 91/2" in height, medium basket measures 11" in diameter and 11" in height and large basket measures 13" in diameter and 12 1/2" in height. Baskets can be nested for easy storage. 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 product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

This product is made in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
