This stunning Dokht basket is handcrafted with love by female artisans in Persia using date palm leaves and kertak. Chevron and diamond patterns are woven into each basket and a pom pom topped lid adds a playful touch. These little baskets are traditionally used to store sewing supplies, but are also perfect for adding a touch of vibrant decoration to your home.

This joyful collection of baskets radiate the rich spirit of the women of Iran; that of life, passion and tradition. Created in bright, cheerful colours that reflect the emotion of the artisan who created it, every piece offers a window into the world of the ancient Iranian art of Kapu weaving, a craft kept alive by female artisans for thousands of years.

Zan Artefacts is committed to equality and was founded to offer a means of support to women throughout Iran where their rights have been restricted since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Working with Zan offers the female artisans a sense of freedom, security and financial independence. Zan partner directly with their talented craftswomen and have formed secure relationships with them to ensure that they are paid fairly and safely.
