These versatile and ecological banana fiber baskets are handcrafted by local artisan women in South India. The baskets are strengthened with a steel wire, so that they retain their form. They are perfect for all kinds of storage use – also suitable to be used in bathrooms and even in the sauna.
The Tikau programme was initiated with the aim of providing a better income, social status and empowerment to the local women. The material used for the bags and baskets is the locally available banana fibre made out of the dead leaves of banana trees. These leaves, previously considered as waste, are now getting a new life in the form of useful, contemporary and sustainable items. No chemicals added in production.
