The golden hues of water hyacinth enhance the simple design of our Wabali storage baskets. The low sided baskets have a surprisingly sturdy framework ideal for a range of purposes from serving breads to storing bathroom items.
Water hyacinth is an aquatic plant that grows in abundance in Vietnam. This can be an invasive plant that needs cultivating to curb its growth, making it a great raw material to create products from. Corn husk is the outer layer of corn. Using this to create baskets makes use of a natural material that would otherwise be discarded. Traditionally, the husk was used as an outer layer on baskets, to make them as airtight as possible to keep the contents as fresh as possible, now it is more often used as decoration.

Nkuku's mango wood pieces are created from sustainable mango wood. The Mango trees are initially grown for their fruit, harvested over a number of years. Once the trees have stopped bearing fruit, they can be cut down and used to make this wooden ruler. This allows farmers to plant more trees and provides them with a supplementary income.
