These are constructed of all natural rush reeds, hand-picked along the banks of remote rivers and then sun dried for over a month before weaving. Then these reeds are hand-woven using a traditional Havana-Weave around a wood frame with our unique bulging sides to allow for greater storage room. Each piece is lined to protect the contents. These are ideal for storing large items like towels, blankets and sheets as well as smaller pieces for which you need easy access without the clutter. These espresso colored storage units are ideal for nearly every décor and season.
