This elegantly-shaped, carefully woven bag in a pretty honey colour will go well with every outfit. You will fall in love with it – it’s lightweight, waterproof, and very durable. This bag is an absolute rarity in our collection! Its maker Helena weaves only a couple of these every year, using an unusual, handcut material – cattail, also known as bulrush. It is definitely one of a kind, woven locally by Polish craftspeople. Basketry Master Helena cuts every leaf manually and then carefully weaves the bags. 

 

We can offer this basket bag to you thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. By purchasing it, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Helena directly.
