The Story Behind It

The Versatility of Abaca

Closely related to the banana plant, but oddly enough considered an herb, the abaca plant is an indigenous material of the Philippines often used to create everything from baskets and clothing to tea bags and banknotes. Abaca plants usually reach between 10 and 15 feet in height, and grow with great speed, making their fiber a terrific renewable resource - one of the reasons why we're big fans!

Abaca is perfectly suited to the construction of our artisanal handmade Madras Baskets, serving trays, drink coasters and more. To create these beautiful eco-conscious baskets, madras (the bark of the abaca plant) is harvested in long, flexible strips that range in color from light brown to nearly black. When woven into baskets, the color variation shows up with an almost marbled look, which gives each item its own unique look.

Madras 3-Drawer Tower 4.3 5 6 6
just what we needed! This is a great storage piece for small areas! Looks just like pictures, & is really sturdy. Drawers squeak a bit, but that is to be expected with woven rubbing on woven. Overall it is exactly as described, & if you catch it on sale it's a good buy! Also comes totally assembled which is a bonus! We use it daily & have had it for a couple months now & it's holding up nicely. January 24, 2013
Perfect for small spaces I've had this tower for five years, and it's moved with me to a few places. I love that it provides a decorative touch while having useful storage space. Because it's made from natural materials, you have to be careful when sliding the drawers. I keep things that I don't often need in this stack, so I don't have to open and close often. The tower is petite and easy to slip into small corners. It has held up well over the years, and I'd buy it again! November 20, 2012
Very nice! I bought this a day ago for extra storage for my hair supplies. It's perfect and will go with any decor. June 12, 2011
Nice, but not what I had expected The 'tower' consists of a frame and what I can best describe as 3 square baskets...not really "drawers". . It is functional, but not in the way I had intended. The baskets have holes for handles/pull-outs, and a fair amount of space around them. So whatever you put in them remains somewhat visible even when closed. It is attractive and good quality for the price, just not what I expected. November 20, 2013
Just as advertised. [...]. Great item. Perfect for what I needed. November 28, 2010
Love how it looks in my bathroom, but... When I first saw this item online, I was sold! I love the look and it fits right into my small bathroom with little space. The price was perfect! But, when it arrived as excited as I was to get it, I soon found out, as I was filling it with items, that the drawers are really hard to slide in and out, and because we use those items on a daily basis, its a daily struggle with opening and closing them. In the end although it looks beautiful in my bathroom...I wish it was easier to use on a daily basis. November 28, 2011
