The traditional handicraft of collecting, dying and weaving baskets from natural pandanus fibres and plant dyes sourced from the bush is a tradition that is handed down through generations.

With their smaller size and handles, these baskets have been specifically hand made for use in your learning space. They are perfect for sorting, storing collections or for children to store and carry their treasures in a play-based environment.

All baskets have been ethically sourced from the artist, with all monies paid directly to the artist.
