Buna Basket with lid - Medium

New to our collection, our natural Palm Fibre Buna Basket with lid is a beautiful way to introduce woven texture to your home. Timeless and functional, they will look great with our favourite tones of timber and chalky whites, paired with earthy ceramics and linens. Pair with the small Buna Basket for additional storage in the same weave and colour to create a cohesive visual story in your home styling.

The medium Buna Basket is ideal for storage of skincare and beauty products in the bathroom; styled on a shelf or coffee table in the living room to keep those essential everyday items tidy; on a console in the entryway to hold keys; or for storing toys and craft materials.

Handmade by Fair Trade artisans in a village community of Bangladesh, each piece is assembled by bundling kaisa grass; wrapping them in fine strips of date palm fibre and coiling and weaving them into shape. The women who make these pieces work from home and a genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures they are paid fairly for their time and skills, among many other benefits.

  • Basket: 20cm diameter x 14.5cm high / handle height in addition 3cm 
  • Hand harvested and bundled kaisa grass (inside the palm fibre)
    Hand stripped palm fibre is wrapped around the kaisa grass as they are coiled and woven into shape.
  • - Our palm fibre baskets may lighten slightly as the fibre ages.
    - To clean, we suggest you shake or vacuum them to dislodge dirt or dust.
    - They are robust and will withstand some condensation however for heavier water-based spills, blot with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible and allow them to dry. Do not rub stains or spills from your basket as this may spread the stain and loosen the palm fibres. Please note that oil-based or brightly coloured spills may not be easily removed - we recommend trying the above methods with a gentle eco-friendly cleaner.
