White grass Baskets: Alwar, Rajasthan

White Grass: An experiment

We tried an experimental product on our trip to Alwar, Rajasthan. And during the visit it had already started raining heavily. We couldn’t source for the usual date leaves or water hyacinth to weave baskets. We sourced corn leaves. Corn Leaves have a beautiful wheatish color and texture which is amazing. And we ended up creating this beautiful basket out of the corn leaves. The white grass baskets!
The village women found a new material to weave and we found great passion. Loveknits brings to you another story of how dedicated and talented these women are.
