These handmade baskets are beautifully created from seagrass.
Not only does this natural fibre have a wonderful warm colour; Seagrass also has an important role to play in stabilising flooded wetland soils.
A win-win for the producers - The Women’s Empowerment Programme. They receive employment and training and the Seagrass does a good job in stabilising the soil in areas increasingly prone to flooding.
Please note that the handles are wrapped in leather.
