Description

Commissioned by Preda, a fair trade NGO, these baskets are made by the Aeta people of the Philippines using traditional weaving techniques. Made with sustainably harvested rattan they achieve simple and unpretentious shapes that catch the eye.

In addition to being a successful product, Bow Bins ask us larger questions about the nature of design, the role of the hand made, and the place of craft-based cultures in a globalized economy.
