Made from natural materials by female artisans in Cambodia
Beachhouse, Nordic or natural chic – our Dara Basket is the perfect match for all of them. The Dara Basket is a stylish storage solution for all your bits and bobs, toys and home textiles. The beautiful lid hides whatever is inside. Alternatively, you can also use the lid separately as a tray.
The baskets are handmade by Manava, a collective working with female artisans in Cambodia. Their products are made from natural rattan. It takes one artisan about 5-7 days to finish one basket and the traditional techniques have been handed down from generation to generation.
The subtle pattern was inspired by the Cambodian Kbach Chakachan symbol.
A large number of Cambodian women living in villages are unemployed. Even if they have a job, their income is less than USD 2.50 per day. As most families have between 3-5 children, it makes it almost impossible for them to survive.
Your purchase provides these talented Cambodian artisans with a sustainable income, empowers their creativity and offers them a safe working environment, where their views and opinions matter.
All items are handmade and unique – therefore, slight variations may occur.
Size: D c. 30 cm, H c. 29 cm (c. 20 cm without the lid)
Material: Natural and sustainable rattan
Country of Origin: Cambodia
The colour stays longest if you keep the baskets out of direct sunlight.
