Mingalaba Woven 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!
