Small Zig Zag Cylindrical Seagrass Basket from Vietnam


Small Zig Zag Cylindrical Seagrass Basket 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.

Basket is handwoven with natural and black dyed grass to show geometric pattern. Baskets measure 9" in diameter and 9 1/2" 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 product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

Baskets are made by artisans in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
