Hand woven hemp yarn basket with white linen paper thread accent at the base.
Folds flat for easy gifting and mailing.
Personally handwoven by me; carefully and professionally finished.
Due to the nature of the hemp thread used the bag reacts well to small amounts of water. Spot cleaning is fine.
Measurements: Approx 9 x 6 inches
Composition: Polished Hemp Cord, 1mm. 20 kilo test strength.
For thousands of years, 90% of all ships’ sails and rope were made from hemp. Hemp is incredibly durable in and out of water, salt or fresh. The word ‘canvas’ comes from the Middle English word “canevas” which comes from the Latin word cannabis.
80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc., were made from hemp until the 1820s, with the introduction of the cotton gin.
