Upon opening the package, you will notice a smoky scent. This is because the baskets are placed in a smoldering fire pit as a last step in the crafting process. The heat in the pit is a natural way to fumigate the baskets of insects and seal the bamboo from rot.
A portion of the proceeds from the baskets is used to fund initiatives that improve the lives of the people in the cooperative community.
