Brimming with our trademark woven texture, the Soha Basket combines practical storage with natural style. Timeless and neutral, the fabric is a handwoven combination of naturally blonde jute and bone coloured cotton thread, so it will work well with most decor styles.
Handloomed soft cotton lining makes this basket ideal to use as a laundry basket to hold your worn clothes in between washes. It is also a functional storage option for children's toys or if you're seeking a beautiful vessel to hold your favourite potted plant. However you choose to use it, the Soha Basket is sure to add purpose, texture and style to your home.
This handwoven jute basket has been crafted by fair trade artisans in a rural village community of Bangladesh. The women first plait long strands of blonde jute, and then weave the plaits together with bone-coloured cotton thread on wooden looms row by row, before stitching the ends using a needle and thread. Interior firm rubber lining ensures this basket remains upright while strong woven handles are both sturdy and statement-making. The final basket is sewn together in a small Fair Trade sewing centre.
A genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures the women who weave and sew our Soha Laundry Baskets are paid fairly, provided with consistent work and safe working conditions, among a host of other benefits that are in keeping with the Ten Principles of Fair Trade.
