Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

Our baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible, made to withstand constant use. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life. 

Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary.

Changes in temperature and humidity may cause your basket to expand and contract, which may make securing the lid difficult at times. Be patient and wait for the weather to change or remove from areas with high humidity (like bathrooms).

    $25 for most other returned orders
    $65
    if your return includes oversized items (area rugs, furniture, mirrors)

Basket is beautiful!

I like the size. Holds my nick nacks that I like easy access to. I thought it was a bit overpriced. Would likely buy it again because it’s so beautiful!

Lost in Translation?

I have been waiting since March 3 for this order to arrive. I have sent customer service an inquiry. No reply. Maybe someone will read this and help me.

Beautiful

The craftsmanship on this basket is stunning. The swirling weave is on the lid is just lovely. And the simple graphic pattern is a standout. It really adds visual depth to our living room. Thank you!
