Ethically handmade by our master artisan, Yanira, our multipurpose baskets are a stylish answer to your storage questions. Perfect for storing your towels, toys, and magazines, our baskets are 100% handmade in Colombia using the natural fiber known as “iraca.” Iraca is a tropical palm native to Colombia that can grow up to 3 meters (10ft) tall and can take up to 3 years to reach maturity which then allows it to be used to create many crafts. Designed in various colorways, our baskets are delicately handmade to perfection. The baskets are sturdy for storage and subtle way to add a pop of color to your home. We dare you to choose only one!
All of our baskets are made using natural fiber. To clean, wipe dry with a damp cloth. Avoid direct sunlight.
