Every day I weave. Each one will play on my mind until it comes to life.
A fun shape created from banana stem fibres.
Banana trees are amazing! I adore creating with their fibre as it comes out so silky yet firm when woven. Banana fibre takes awhile to process due to it high water content, but definitely worth the end results.
This basket is a little different to my usual designs, I was testing some ideas combing twining and coiling with some added braiding. The shape is a little abstract.
Size: 19cm heigh, 14cm base
Material: Banana stem fibre, Raffia, vine
I recommend not leaving them sitting in full sunshine, if treated with love and respect this basket will last a lifetime.
