Palm Frond Baskets
The palm tree is known in Hawaii as the tree of a hundred uses. With the use of a sharp knife and a pair of leather gloves, basket reed can be split from the branch. The leaves are smooth and flexible, and naturally water resistant.
These tote bags and baskets are very durable, having the thickness of the reed and the flexibility of the leaves.
