Tiny catch-all baskets, and ornaments, make for incredibly welcome gifts. Both display the unique designs and handwoven quality KAZI has become known for. They can be especially effective as stocking stuffers or as gifts for kids.

Tiny catch-all basket

The tiny catch-all baskets are super functional. They’re great on a shelf, desk or countertop for storage or organizing — just the place for cotton balls, makeup or jewelry, or for keys, paperclips, coins, a small toy or gift card, or other items.

Our ornaments are imaginative and colorful. Those that are tiny woven baskets are the perfect place to slip a special note or gift.

Coaster sets add elegance and color to a room. They come in simple designs, or in more elaborate and even playful designs, including our fringed sets. Fringed coasters can even make drinking water more fun.

They’ll elevate your living room tabletops or bar carts and are perfect for your glass of wine or beverage in the evening, or while you are enjoying your morning cup of tea or coffee! Mix and match with your favorite table linens and accent furniture.

Our fringed catch-alls are especially playful. These delicately woven accessories are designed to add flair and color to any room or empty surface, for plants or for storage needs.
