Pāli was born in a remote village in Myanmar. In awe of the Burmese people and their traditional weaving methods that have been passed down through generations, our collaboration began.
Maggie and Cass are a mother-daughter team based in Melbourne, Australia. We have since been working closely with our local guide and interpreter, who has enabled us to interact and trade directly and ethically with the villagers to bring their craft to the world.
Baskets are woven from a combination of new, reused and recycled colourful pallet strapping. Recycled materials are not always available but we are continually working on new ways to make this more achievable.
Recycled strapping is made from plastic bottles and other plastics collected from gutters, streets and beaches. This not only helps clean up the local environment, but provides a small income for collectors. Factories are local in Myanmar and neighbouring Thailand.
The basket weaving process is done completely by hand.
Dimensions are only an average as each basket is individually handwoven and therefore there may be variations in size.
L; 30cm H x 20cm deep x 36cm wide
