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.
