100% water hyacinth
Natural and textured, the Solna Basket Set are an attractive storage solution for all sorts of household items. Handwoven by craftsmen and women in Vietnam, each basket is made with dried water hyacinth woven tightly around an iron wire frame, for a product that's sturdy, durable, and that will last for years and years. Because the water hyacinth is natural smooth and there are no coarse edges, the Solna Baskets won’t snag textiles, so are great for use as linen or towel storage (as well as book, utensils, root vegetables in the kitchen, toys…). Available as a nesting set of three, these baskets are practically stacked when not in use.
Water hyacinth is a fantastic material for homewares and woven accessories because it is eco-friendly and sustainable: Extremely fast-growing, water hyacinth will quickly replenish itself and requires no pesticides, herbicides, or irrigation to grow. In addition, it’s softer and smoother than other grasses (like rattan and wicker), but also lighter and less brittle. The material used for our Solna collection required hardly any processing before use (making it extra eco-friendly) and was worked by hand-craftsmen and women, who were fairly compensated for their work. So they’re beautiful for the environment, and your home.

"Can it get wet?"
"Avoid keeping the baskets in a constantly damp environment (like an unventilated bathroom or the fridge). Like other grasses, water hyacinth will absorb moisture and may grow mildew or split if itâ€™s not able to properly dry out. If it gets wet, simply wipe it with a dry cloth."
