For The Love Of Woven Seagrass Baskets!

THE ART 

We are moving towards being environmentally conscience and resourceful when it comes to decor around the home. Make a statement, out last the changing trends and use it for all facets of your own paradise at home with our beloved seagrass baskets.

All our baskets are individually hand woven with love by local artisans from the southeast tropics. This is an art and way of life for thousands of years. The artisans harvest floating and washed ashore seagrass and do not use wild seagrass plants. 

WHY USE DEAD SEAGRASS?

Seagrass beds provide unique ecosystems in coastal locations, and are environmentally and economically vital. Seagrass are actually not ‘grasses’ at all, as they do flower. Like land plants, seagrass produce oxygen. Seagrasses live in the coastal waters of most of the worlds’ continents. They are the main diet of dugongs and green turtles and provide a habitat for many, smaller marine animals, some of which, like prawns and fish, are commercially important. They also absorb nutrients from coastal run-off and stabilise sediment, helping to keep the water clear. Tropical seagrasses are important in their interactions with mangroves and coral reefs by trapping sediment and slow water movement, causing suspended sediment to fall out. This trapping of sediment benefits coral by reducing sediment loads in the water. Who doesn’t love crystal clear and pristine waterfront views?

IDEAS FOR USE

From a seagrass beach basket, seagrass picnic basket or a trendy basket for groceries, to stylish storage in all rooms of the house. Add a fantastic pop of colour and texture to any roomUse it in your living room, bedroom, laundry room, playroom, or baby’s room; they even make attractive plant holders! 

Seagrass baskets are amazingly plush and lightweight yet incredibly hard wearing. They can hold a surprising amount of weight. Seagrass baskets, when wet, are still structurely sound and strong. No surprise our seagrass belly baskets is one of our most popular sellers and always sells out fast.
