This fabulous market basket comes from a fair trade organisation  in South India, created to promote and market quality handicrafts.

This strong and durable basket was made by Lakshmi Subramani from recycled LDPE* plastic.

Lakshmi  has been trained by the SPEED Trust (Slum People Education and Economic Development) in Chennai, India.


*LDPE  – or Low-Density Polyethylene is considered a clean and safe plastic like its counterpart: HDPE.
It is commonly found in household items like frozen food containers, condiment bottles, and shopping or produce bags. Recycling facilities usually turn LDPE into garbage cans, bubble wrap, and flooring.
But in this case, in the capable hands of the talented maker, it is turned into something much more interesting!

Tough as well as practical, this basket will last many years.
Dimensions: 35 x 31 x 13 cm
