  • Description

    These shopping baskets have been a favourite of ours for many years.  They tick all the important boxes of aesthetics, practicality and sustainability, and no two baskets are ever the same.  So it’s no surprise that they are very popular, so much so that we now only have a few left, and are currently unable to source any more (argh!!).

    If you have a colour preference please add a note in the box above, but bearing in mind the low stock level please don’t be too picky.

    Sizes vary slightly but are typically

    Large – 45cm width (now sold out, sorry!)

    Medium – 38cm width (now sold out, sorry!)

    Small – 33cm width (only one left)

  • Delivery

    We offer two types of delivery:

    • Standard Delivery via post is £5.95. For orders over £100 standard delivery is free of charge.
    • Next Working Day For an additional £4.00, your order will be delivered the next working day.

    Khohn Taka

    Khohn Taka

    Recycled plastic baskets made in Thailand

    Tucked away in a small village in north east Thailand are the Khohn Taka, which translates as basket people. These people have the skill and patience to make a recycled basket from old plastic straps. Not as easy as it sounds!

    Recycling has long been a way of life in this part of Thailand. Anything that can be re-used is re-used. Old cars are taken to pieces bit by bit. Beer bottles are returned to the brewery and refilled. And plastic packaging straps used to reinforce parcels are collected from local factories and turned into baskets.

    The baskets are woven by hand. After a day in the paddy fields the villagers return to their homes and have the opportunity to earn some extra money by weaving. Originally the baskets were made for the fish markets where their tough waterproof qualities make them ideal. Since then several different designs of recycled plastic basket have been created. The Khohn Taka's recycled shopping basket and recycled bicycle basket are now widely regarded as eco-design classics. Each basket uses about 50m of straps.
