The Blessings Basket is made from the natural colored sheath that came from a giant Alexander Palm on Hawaii island. Stitched with Raffia Palm fiber, the added woven strips of the blonde Royal Palm create interest. The Raffia Palm fiber hanger has wood beads along with an embellished double holed bamboo domino bead.
Completed with a museum quality encaustic wax finish (an ancient preservation process using beeswax and Damar tree resin that fuses into the plant fibers when heated). It can be buffed to a shine or left to a matte finish.
Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome
