Madurai - Palmyra Winnowing basket
At Rihaa we are always looking to Innovate and bring new life to objects of tradition and culture of our diverse country. Who would have thought that winnowing baskets woven using Palmyra leaves would look so amazing on a wall?! We certainly did! So here are our wall plates in 4 colour combinations inspired by the Gopurams of South India and handcrafted by the women of Pandya Nadu!
These baskets have been made in conjunction with NGOs that aim to provide employment to rural artisans of Tamil Nadu. The Palmyra leaves are cut into strips and dyed in natural colours before being woven by hand.
Available with loops on the back
Also available as sets of 2, 3 and 4!
Note: Since the product uses natural materials and has been crafted by hand, small variations and artefacts may be present
