Zay Basket in Sunny Yellow | Woven Grocery Basket | Handmade in Myanmar

Notify me when this product is available:

Size
Upcycled baskets woven by May and her family near Pakkoku, Magway Region. 'Zay' means 'market' in Myanmar, we love this style as a shopping basket! The longer handles are designed to carry groceries. 
  • Pieces of pallet banding, usually stapled across crates for shipping, are woven to create lasting baskets.
  • Weaving these baskets is the only source of livelihood for May Zun Chit and her family, some of whom are living with physical disabilities or are very elderly.
  • This type of basket is a feature of everyday life across Myanmar due to their sturdiness, durability and water resistant properties.
  • S: 16h x 17w x 26l (cm) excluding handles.
    L: 24h x 20w x 32l (cm) excluding handles.

Beautiful and useful bag

I love this bag. I received one as a present last year and have now bought two to give as presents. I like the provenance and the story on the card inside the bag and the recycled nature of the product.

gorgeous basket

it's pretty, it's light, it's strong and I am excited to be supporting crafts people in Myanmar, a country I have visited and now is under political siege. Thank you!
