Notes from Hajiganj:

Kaisa grasses grow naturally on the riverside area and on the sandy islands next to the big rivers. It is harvested once a year during the period of April to June. And from June-July onwards, these grasses become thicker and are then used for other purposes such as making fence, temporary storerooms etc.

The best quality grass grows by the bank of the famous river Padma in Rajshahi district and also by the river Jamuna in Sherpur, Bogra.

After harvesting the green Kaisa grass, the farmers usually leave them in the field for 2-3 days to dry under the sun. Once dried, the green grass turns into golden color. These dried grasses are then tied into bundles and transported to the highland by boat. Then the grasses are loaded into the truck to be delivered to our production center.

Once the grasses reach our production unit, we sundry them for another 3-4 days, and once they are completely dried, we transfer them in our store to be preserved for the entire year of supply to make baskets. The stored grasses are sundried every 60 days to get rid of moisture or dampness.

Love surprises? Each of these hamper baskets is one of a kind because no two saris are alike. Authentic sari garments come in a wide variety of colors and patterns that are as vibrant as the culture they come from. When recycled sari cotton is wrapped around kaisa grass, it can be woven into a striking basket, with a color and pattern all its own. What will make yours distinctive and special?
