Mingalaba Hand Woven Byron Basket
A BEAUTIFUL, LONG-LASTING ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC BAGS.
One trillion plastic bags are used and discarded globally every year. Five billion are used every year in Australia, and most end up in landfill. Plastic bags harm the environment in so many ways. But we don’t need plastic bags, when we have our Mingalaba basket.
A Mingalaba basket is beautiful, strong and durable, handwoven from pallet straps by artisans in Myanmar (Burma). The frame is made from recycled material. The design is based on ‘teacher baskets’ used daily in Myanmar. No two Mingalaba baskets are the same.
Your Mingalaba basket can be used time and time again, for years to come, making this a sustainable, and beautiful alternative to plastic bags. Even better, your purchase directly helps families in Myanmar.
Mingalaba baskets take reasonable weight, and are easily cleaned. Use your basket at the market, for a picnic, at the beach, for work or anything you like!
The Mingalaba Byron Baskets feature double handles and are perfect for picnics, shopping, farmers markets, or a day at the beach.
Available in 2 sizes:
- Medium H 27cm W 18cm L 34cm
- Large H 33cm W 20cm L 38cm
Byron Basket is another style that lasts the distance. Crafted by the people of one of the original villages that started with Mingalaba back in the early days.
The more this basket is used the softer it gets. Roundish in shape but keeps its shape.
