These Nkomi baskets are hand woven from the tactile natural materials of water hyacinth and corn husk. The sophisticated two tone neutral colour palette makes them an attractive yet practical storage basket.
Words of Wisdom
Water hyacinth is an aquatic plant that grows in abundance in Vietnam. This can be an invasive plant that needs cultivating to curb its growth, making it a great raw material to create products from. Corn husk is the outer layer of corn. Using this to create baskets makes use of a natural material that would otherwise be discarded. Traditionally, the husk was used as an outer layer on baskets, to make them as airtight as possible to keep the contents as fresh as possible, now it is more often used as decoration.
To care for your basket, we recommend using a soft-bristle brush to regularly remove any built up dust. To clean the item, you can use a mild soap and water on a soft cloth to wipe away any dirt. Please do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. Colour may fade in sunlight. Indoor use only.
