These baskets have a hidden frame that is hand welded in metal. Each basket is then woven with cords that have been made from torn fabric ("chindi") made from authentic Indian saris.

The baskets are made through a project that empowers women and teaches them new trades (like welding and small business practices) in India. These baskets use discarded fabrics from the Indian textile industry. By reusing discarded fabric remenants, the project helps reduce, reuse, and recycle while keeping the price of the raw materials inexpensive. That is why these works of art are so reasonably priced.

We absolutely love the colors, the texture, and usefullness of these unique baskets. The unique mix of sari patterns used yields distinct baskets, despite similar shapes and designs.

  • Medium round basket with scalloped edge
  • Hand-wrapped chindi around hand-welded frame
  • Production encourages financial independence in women
  • Sustainably sourced
  • Each basket features a unique pattern of wrapping
