Sculptural and organic in appearance, the handwoven Mira Basket in Large is designed to be a stylish and functional laundry or toy basket. Wherever you choose to style this basket in your home, it will add warmth, visual interest and an element of story-telling thanks to its beautiful shape and the texture of natural woven palm fibre.
Featuring a practical fitted lid, place the Mira Basket on the floor or under a console or bench to keep your belongings stowed away, while still being easily accessible. The height and firm structure of the Mira basket is ideal for holding worn clothes between washes in the laundry, bathroom or bedroom; as a toy basket for children to access and easily tidy their toys; or as an attractive storage solution in any room.
Handmade by fair trade artisans in a village community of Bangladesh, each Mira Basket is assembled by bundling kaisa grass; wrapping them in fine strips of date palm fibre and coiling and weaving them into shape. The women who make these pieces work from home or in communal areas of their village and a genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures they are paid fairly for their time and skills, among many other benefits.
