Our decorative basket Kurma convinces with its exceptional combination of materials: alternating banana fiber and contrasting white recycled plastic are woven for the basket and rounded off with strikingly designed handles made of thick, sturdy water hyacinth.

The flat shape is reminiscent of classic laundry baskets used for transporting clothes, but as a woven basket made of natural fibers, our Kurma is significantly more beautiful to look at and also fits more comfortably in the hand with its soft handles. However, the basket can also serve as an ideal storage space for towels, pillows or other textiles. With three different sizes ranging from 36 to 49 cm in diameter, there is certainly the right basket for you.

Please also note our other offers - in our store you will find many different baskets, home accessories and bags made from sustainable materials under fair production conditions.

Main material: banana fiber

Our baskets are made from vegetable fibers. They smell and therefore feel wonderfully like nature.

Banana fibers are the fibers from the layered trunks of banana trees used in agriculture. The intense brown color occurs naturally when the fibers are dried in the sun for about a week. The individual strips are then rolled into the characteristic, approximately 6 mm thick strands. Only old, dying banana trees are used for this material. This gives these crops a second life as a dimensionally stable and robust raw material for many handmade baskets here at Soeji.

Other materials: water hyacinth, recycled plastic, nylon thread
