From plastic to basket...
Set up in 2015, Mowgs baskets are handmade by a group of community artisans from Myanmar (Burma) villages using traditional weaving skills that have been passed down through the generations. The baskets are lovingly handcrafted by artisans who have been weaving for generations.
These Myanmar villagers had collected plastic strapping and were recycling this waste to create beautiful baskets. Without realizing it, this community of weavers had given new life to an otherwise useless material.
It takes a day for each weaver to make a basket.
Bright and bold with colourful patterns and defined textures, the baskets have been designed to strike a perfect balance between style and practicality. With techniques reflecting their heritage and creative way of life, the weavers have turned plastic packaging tape into a fashionable, functional and ethical accessory.
