From storage to decor, there’s so much you can do to spruce up your space with a basket.
Our baskets are truly a labor of love, handmade from natural grasses and dyed grasses. Each basket took days to make and provides its makers with a fair wage. Every purchase of a basket on our site goes to furthering our mission to bring opportunity and hope to families in isolated communities around the world.
All of the baskets in the Nkombo Collection are either woven from grassy plant fibers found around the island or from recycled plastic harvested from empty rice bags. All of the baskets in the Wicker Collection are woven from vines found in the rain forest around the Coppey Abajo village.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re spending a lot more time at home, which makes it a great time to organize and redecorate to make it a space we love!
Here are just a few ways you can use our baskets to organize, decorate and store items in your home!
1. HANG ON YOUR WALLS
These baskets will make the most beautiful gallery on an empty wall you’ve been wanting to fill. Create your own display of baskets or use baskets to fill in your gallery wall with your other favorite art and knickknacks.
2. STORE TOILET PAPER
It’s the perfect way to store your most prized possession during quarantine life… toilet paper! This is an easy way to get some extra storage space in your bathroom and even make it easy to find in guest bathrooms.
3. HOLD YOUR PLANTS
We love the trend of indoor plants in baskets. Artificial plants can go directly in the basket, but we suggest planting your real plants in a planter, then setting the planter itself inside the basket.
4. USE AS A DROP OFF BASKET
You’ll never search for your keys again. Keep a “drop off” basket by your door to collect your keys, sunglasses, wallet and even mail. This keeps everything organized and easy to find.
5. DISPLAY YOUR BOOKS
If your bookshelf is overflowing, a basket of books by your bed is another creative way to display your books.
