Description from Green Depot

Woven of kaisa grass. Natural woven basket made from sturdy kaisa grass. Kaisa grass dries from its natural light green to a very pale, almost tan color. Made in Bangladesh by Dhaka Handicrafts.

Dhaka Handicrafts was established by Enfants du Monde (EDM), a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization headquartered in Geneva. EDM has worked to improve the lives of children and rural families in Bangladesh since 1974 through a variety of social programs. Artisans working in family workshops make a variety of traditional wicker handicrafts from bamboo, cane, grass, and wood as well as clay pots. Approximately 14,000 members in 64 groups benefit from handicraft production, and a compulsory savings plan that earns interest. The group has established a fund for emergency medical services for members. Dividends the organization receives from its ATO buyers are used to provide sanitary toilets, tube-wells, houses and saplings to group members.
