The pattern created in a coil weave basket is incredibly striking. The natural colors of this banana fiber and sisal basket make it an incredibly versatile addition to your decor. And excellent choice for a coffee table or as a small bread basket on your dinner table.
The best resources are those that are both renewable and readily available. That's what makes these sisal and banana fiber baskets so wonderful. When they start to get dry and turn brown, banana stalks and leafs are selected and collected by artisans in the local villages. In a process that takes two to three days, the coil weaving combines the various banana fibers with sisal for the brown / white contrast these baskets are known for. The banana leaf fiber is used as the internal structure, with the sisal and banana stalks wrapped around the fiber, and coiled. What a beautiful basket with a fabulous story to tell.
