Small, shallow natural jute basket with a saffron yellow rim. Comes with a little fabric ReSpiin label and swing tag.  Hand made responsibly in Bangladesh from natural jute, a renewable and sustainable material.

Approximate size:  Small - 6cm x 15cm diameter.

Jute plants are easy to grow, have a high yield per acre and, unlike cotton,
have little need for pesticides and fertilisers. Jute grows during the rainy
season in Bangladesh which is from June to October. The plants are ready to
harvest in four to six months, after the flowers are shed.

The fibres lie beneath the bark around the woody core. To extract the fibre,
the jute bundles are submersed in water and left for a few days until the
fibres come loose and are ready for stripping from the stalk, then washed and
dried. This is what the ReSpiin baskets are made from. The remaining jute
stalks can be used in a similar way to wood pulp, or work well as a renewable
source of cooking fuel.

Jute plants help to clean the air. During growth they take in three times
more CO2 than the average tree, converting this CO2 into oxygen. Jute plants
also enrich the soil. As these plants grow fast, they are often used in crop
rotation. The leaves and roots left after harvest enrich the soil with
micronutrients, maintaining soil fertility. Jute is 100% biodegradable.

The producer of the baskets in Bangladesh is committed to providing regular
employment in a working environment that is safe and hygienic. They pay a
living wage to all employees. They have developed an innovative way of
producing jute rope and stylish jute baskets which means that can produce a
much higher return from the jute than when it is sold for basic jute sacks.

The sewing thread used in this product is made of 70% polyester and 30%

It cannot be 100% cotton thread as this will not tolerate the sewing machine

tension needed to be able to stitch the seagrass into place.

This bowl features a little fabric ReSpiin label stitched onto the rim and

comes with a recyclable swing tag. Tested safe for food contact.  Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Made from both natural jute and coloured jute. The coloured jute is 100% Azo free.
