These non-woven textile baskets are made in Madagascar from wild gathered and farm raised cocoons using a no-kill process that is sustainable and eco-friendly. The baskets are made by CPALI, our sister organization. Click here to learn about the process that members of CPALI in Madagascar use to make the silk textile. The non-woven textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the basket. The dyes used are color-fast and natural.
Each basket is finished with a handwoven, coordinating trim that is also made in Madagascar.
They look organic, interesting and special. They are the perfect storage for those little items that are always loose. Place them on your entryway table. Store your keys and wallet in them or put your flowering plant in a basket, instantly making it living room worthy. Mix and match sizes and colors or make it easy and purchase the whole family, for a reduced price.
These baskets were sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by CPALI, a poverty alleviation NGO in north eastern Madagascar that invests in local leadership, community ownership and links these partners to global markets. 100% of the profits from Ta’na’na Silk are returned to Madagascar.
Care: Hand-wash only, warm or cold water. Hang on line to dry. Iron with steam iron on low-heat setting and place a pressing guard sheet over the silk to protect it while you iron.
