Pathi Grass is a fibrous plant that produces a very fine natural weaving material. We developed the open-weave pattern found on the sides of the baskets with our NGO partner and their master weaver when we visited Bangladesh in 2019. To achieve this pattern, artisans practice a combination of weaving flat and twisted pathi grass. The base of the baskets is a traditional solid herringbone weaving pattern.
The artisans who make these baskets have been basket weaving with pathi grass and other natural fibres for many years. They are based in a beautiful tropical village laden with coconut palms and work together in a community Fair Trade workspace. The NGO that supports this groups of artisans ensures they receive regular work, safe working conditions and fair wages.
