Size
Upcycled baskets woven by May Zun Chit and her family near Pakkoku, Magway Region. 'Zay' means Market in Myanmar, we love this style as a shopping basket! The longer handles make it easier 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.
    M: 18h x 18w x 28l (cm) exclusing handles.
