Matr Boomie Baskets
Artisan Organization: Matr Boomie
Hogla leaves, jute plants, and palm leaves are some of the most sustainable materials that nature can provide us with. These plants are harvested and dried to convert into strips or fibers. These are then hand braided and weaved into beautiful functional baskets by master artisans in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh has suffered genocide, floods, cyclones and tornados, and the dense population is extremely impoverished. As a response to these events, a non-profit was formed to provide art training, health camps, social and economic development to empower artisans. We work with this non-profit to provide jobs to basket- weaving artisans, and send you a beautiful handmade basket from Bangladesh to your home!
