These beautiful baskets are hand loomed with textile waste from the garment manufacturing industry in India, meaning less impact on the environment from waste going into landfill, or being burnt. The textiles woven into these baskets are mostly 100% cotton, and the stonewashed blues of these gorgeous rugs are offcuts from the manufacture of jeans. Generously proportioned, these baskets are useful for toys, clothes, shoes, knick knacks, large pot plants or just adding a coastal blue and white accent to your room.
Size: 45cm x 45cm.
