STORY

Our standard planters make a sustainable choice as indoor plant holders. This multifunctional basket is handwoven and adds a natural expression to any space. The minimal planter is perfected in interior and exterior spaces that demand minimalism.

Each planter is made by an Artisan in Bolgatanga, Ghana, who has learned this skillset from matriarchal figures in the community, during childhood. Ancestral weaving skills have been passed forward from generation to generation. Handwoven from a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this sculpture takes roughly 2 days to complete. 
 

    Dimensions

    Materials

    Elephant grass: organic material with authentic reed colour variations which are affected by where and when the plant is harvested.

    Heritage

    Your purchase helps to preserve indigenous weaving traditions & provides functional employment to Artisans in Ghana.

    Sustainability

    We are committed to developing our products in the most agro-friendly ways possible. We partner with farmers that harvest elephant grass from living sources that can be regenerated at the same rate as they are used.

    Product Care

    Extend the life of your Woven Worldwide product with our after-care advice.

    Care

    Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of the woven product (whether it is in its authentic reed or pigmented) to experience discolouration. Prolonged pressure from heavy objects will cause the shape of the product to be distorted. It is best to limit the exposure of such elements to preserve the authentic look and feel of your product.

    When using cosmetics, perfumes or any alcohol-based solutions such as hand sanitizers, please take time to be sure that they are dry on your skin before engaging with Woven Worldwide products.
