Palm baskets are very sustainable, and made with only dried palm leaves. The palm fronds are trimmed off the trees (it does not damage the tree), and dried in the sun. The leaves are then cut into strips and woven into shape - no other materials are used. These baskets are finely crafted and will stand the test of time; however, when they do reach the end of their life, they are 100% bio-degradable / compostable.
Note: the size and exact dimensions of these baskets will vary slightly. Every basket is woven by hand, and each feature the unique variations that are to be expected in handcrafted items.
