With the addition of this spacious basket, your home will no longer lack storage space. Thanks to the matching lid, you can keep laundry, blankets, toys or anything else that would otherwise make a mess out of sight.

The basket is not only practical, but also impresses with its very special design: banana fibers are held together with a net-shaped pattern of white cotton cords, creating a beautiful light-dark contrast. The elegant funnel-shaped lid offers even more space compared to baskets with a flat lid. The base for the basket is a sturdy metal frame so that it always retains its shape.

SOEJI products are artfully crafted unique pieces. Due to hand manufacturing and natural variations in materials, they may vary slightly in size, color and shape.

Main material: banana fiber

The baskets are made from plant fibers. They therefore smell and feel wonderfully natural.

Banana fiber is the fibers of the layered trunks of agricultural banana trees. The intense brown color occurs naturally when the fibers are dried in the sun for about a week. The individual ribbons are then rolled into the characteristic, approx. 6 mm thick strands. Only old, dying banana trees are used for this material. This gives these plants a second life as a dimensionally stable and robust raw material for many handmade baskets.
Other materials: cotton, metal frame

This basket is handmade in Java, Indonesia.
