Basketboy Handwoven Natural Rattle
Basketboy is an award winning Kangaroo Island based weaver working with natural fibres.
He weaves using only local sustainable or invasive species that grow wildly around his home on pristine Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
These rattles are woven from Spiny Rush that grows in the marshlands and other wetland areas. The fibres are harvested with permission from the plant, naturally dried and then soaked in rainwater in preparation for what is a very old and secret weaving pattern.
Each unique rattle contains a small rock, some seasonal seed or pod, and a small bell, all sourced locally from Kangaroo Island. Handles measure approximately 20cm each.
Rattles can be rinsed under running water (advisable prior to handling by children). Use under supervision is recommended with young children.
Great for musicians too.
