This round, chunky style basket has been skillfully hand woven from natural seagrass and upcycled sari material. Pedlars buy used saris from households and sell them on to companies who usually recycle them. Instead of the saris being recycled, ReSpiin reuse them, weaving the fabric together with seagrass to make a beautiful basket that is unique and one of a kind. Finished with a little ReSpiin label sewn onto the rim.

Hand made responsibly in Bangladesh from natural seagrass; a renewable, sustainable and biodegradable material. Comes with a swing tag detailing the upcycled nature of the product.

Wipe clean.

Approximate size: 11cm high x 24cm diameter.

Please note that due to the upcycled nature of this basket there will be slight variations in the colour and print of the sari fabric used to that shown in the pictures. Your basket will be woven with a blue or green coloured sari but this could vary from lime green to deep blue and everything in between!

Seagrass grows very quickly in shallow saltwater along coastlines and rivers. Once mature, the grass is cut by hand and dried in the sun, then hand twisted and woven. Dried seagrass is durable and moisture resistant.

The producer of the baskets in Bangladesh is committed to providing regular employment in a working environment that is safe and hygienic and they pay a living wage to all employees.

Not only is seagrass totally natural and sustainable, it is also a renewable and biodegradable material.

ReSpiin is a homeware brand designed and developed by Green Pioneer. It was created to showcase stylish recycled and renewable textiles. Its pioneering producers work with materials that have a story to tell - whether that's about the way a material grows or the journey it's been on.

Made from used pieces of sari fabric woven together with seagrass fibres.
