Basket Trio

Basket Trio

Description

A set of compact baskets for small, medium, and large storage, each made with various traditional handweaving techniques. Big is ideal for organizing bathroom linens, toys, magazines, fabric scraps, and sewing projects. Mid is light and portable, perfect to store in your trunk (they collapse easily) in case of an impromptu jaunt to the beach, farmer’s market, or laundromat. Little has a bold, chunky weave which gives it a sculptural appeal—we recommend removing the linen lining to show off the basket’s winding, rope-like structure.

Curator's Notes

The Collection
By operating in-country we’ve been given unique exposure to furniture designers and makers — from artists, to artisan co-ops, to large houses who make items for luxury brands. We’re always seeking furniture which complements our rugs. So we made our own. We’re starting small; a refined edit of sculptural, simple pieces in which form and materials harmonize.

The Material

Water hyacinth is a wildly abundant and powerful plant full of eco-friendly properties. Extremely quick-growing, it's tough, fibrous roots actually purify water, absorbing pollutants like nitrogen, phosphorus, lead, and mercury in high concentrations. To process it for basket weaving, the stalks are shredded lengthways, which exposes the fibers, and then left to dry in the sun.

Seagrass is a misleading name for many species of land-growing, occasionally sweet-smelling sedge grasses harvested for their strong, fibrous leaves and stems. The environmentally-friendly material has a natural wax coating which helps to repel dirt and dust, and has been used for over 150 years to hand-weave household goods.

The Supplier

Our partner is a family-owned company based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, which was founded over 40 years ago. They specialize in solid wood craftsmanship, leatherwork, and an attention to detail. Their passion for design, visible in their handiwork, is partially influenced by Scandinavian lines and techniques.
