I was recently in Grenada and a lovely gentleman approached us on the beach selling a handmade basket. Okay, I caved in and bought the beautiful basket after he told us of the MANY uses (“It can hold your keys, your phone, your  fruit, your decorations”… you get the picture). But I like it empty so that I can enjoy the amazing design created in the middle with generous texture.

Created by one palm leaf, the inter folding leaves create a functional and  bowl of many sizes and shapes. Through time it will become a natural mahogany color.

I’m thinking that I can design some fabric around this design, what do you think?
