Kaisa is a sturdy wild grass that dries from its natural light green to a pale almost tan color. Artisans cut kaisa grass from riverbanks during monsoon season, leaving the roots for next year's crop. The baskets are crafted by women in Bangladesh. The women are provided steady, fair wages and safe workplaces as well as training in new techniques to expand their skills.
