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 beautifully stores and displays your favourite beauty products, your keys and sunglasses on the entrance dresser or your other trinkets. It is also the perfect bread or fruit basket.
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 4-5 days to finish one basket and the traditional techniques have been handed down from generation to generation.
The subtle “star pattern” was inspired by the Cambodian Kbach Chan Flower 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.
