These brown unique wall mats are made out of sisal grass which is grown on farms belonging to the basket weavers,. The leaves of the sisal plant are used to obtain a fibre which is rolled to twine, and then be woven to a basket.
The weaver’s dye the fibres and then roll the twine on their lap. Making baskets is a very labour intensive art. The baskets come in a number of different colours and patterns, with each design entirely made up by these artistic ladies!
