Home Basket Veronica
A home basket is great for storing and arranging things at the house.
The basket is ideal for storing hats and gloves in the hallway, blankets and scarves on the terrace, necessities in the bathroom, or anything else you can imagine! It is a practical interior design element in a nordic home. The basket has a wide bottom that is able to hold a lot of items, and it can be easily moved around thanks to the goatskin handles. The basket is designed by Anne-Liis Leht.
Dimensions: height 27 cm, diameter of the bottom 33 cm
The basket is made of natural veta vera grass straw, handles are covered with goatskin. Avoid long-time use in humid conditions. Should the basket loose its shape, hydrate it lightly, and restore its initial form. Allow it to dry in a well-ventilated room. Colors may fade in contact with direct sunlight. Caution – this product may splinter!
The Yen Pang Basket Weavers cooperation was established in 2014 in the Kongo village of northern Ghana, when Mondo offered the village women an opportunity to learn basket weaving. Having initially started off under a mango tree with eight women, the cooperation has now doubled in size, and has a small facility which was renovated with the help of Mondo. About half of the weavers are widowers, whose position in the society is low, and most of the women are illiterate. Weaving baskets offers them an important additional income after small farming. During fall 2014, Triin Kordemets was in the Kongo village as a volunteering designer, and a year later Anne-Liis Leht did the same, and their cooperation with the local artisans has led to the creation of the baskets being sold here.
