This fabulous storage basket is handwoven using recycled LDPE* plastic extruded into 'wires' suitable for weaving.
There are so many possibilities for this handsome basket: use it to store toys, bolts of fabric, use it as a laundry basket and any other excuse to have this strong and vibrant basket in your life.
It was made by marginalised women trained and supported from a fair trade organisation in South India
As tough as it is beautiful, this basket will last many years.
*LDPE – or Low-Density Polyethylene. 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 ladies in the slum, it is turned into something much more interesting!
