Woven Rice Basket - Carnival
Add a bit of Vietnamese history into your home with this traditional rice basket. These baskets would be used to carry rice from field to the market, and are recognised by their fold-down collapsible rim. This rice basket has been hand-woven by artisans in Vietnam from sea grass. The fibre is sustainably harvested, then is flattened by hand, before being dyed and woven by hand-weavers in a community centre and in their homes.
A truly multipurpose storage item, use this basket for laundry, storage, or while shopping, and you should be telling its story for many years to come.
