The essential spring item for any gardener, this basket, handwoven with hogla fibre, makes light work of planting. Comes with strong and sturdy handles.
Hogla leaves come from trees found in the mangroves and tidal forests of coastal belts of Banglasdesh. The young succulent leaves are a forage crop palatable to animals and the pollen grains are collected and sold in the markets or used to make home-made cakes.
Produced by The Jute Works which is a registered charitable trust. It was established in 1973 to rehabilitate the war-widowed and war-affected poor, rural women of Bangladesh. The aim was to provide these women with work at home, producing handicraft items made from locally available jute. Over the years, The Jute Works range of crafts has widened and now includes weaving products.
