Handmade Jute Square Baskets.
Silky braids of natural jute are woven and stitched into a carefully crafted square storage basket. Clean lines, smooth fibres and a cubic design compliment today’s relaxed interiors and offer simple elegance to everyday living.
Carnival’s handcrafted baskets provide work and eduction for rural women artisans and their families in Bangladesh through fair trade.
Basket approximate sizes:
Small 18cm W x 18cm D x 16cm H
Medium 23cm W x 23cm D x 18cm H
Large 30cm W x 30cm D x 20cm H
Note that these sizes can vary slightly from batch to batch due to the nature of handwoven wares.
Reshaping a jute basket is easy. Lightly spray the inside of the basket with a water mister, stuff it firmly into the shape you'd like by using a stiff material such as scrunched up newspaper or kraft paper. Allow to dry in a warm spot. Once dry it should hold it's structure.
