This oversized basket from Kenya provides versatile storage and striking style. Unstructured and woven from 100% sisal, the basket must be stuffed full to remain upright: think blankets and pillows, other oversized storage, or your most massive potted house plant!

Limited edition. Sold individually. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly. Made from 100% sisal and textile dye.

Due to the large size and unstructured nature of this basket, it will ship flattened and will need to be shaped upon arrival.
