Another design from our French partner Facteur who has been creating home and fashion products using recycled material to create employment for women in the rural communities of Africa for over a decade by using recycled local waste and combining their creative talents. The crocheting technique used produces strong and durable baskets despite them being made of carrier bags.
The waste is collected and cleaned locally, no dying is undertaken so the colours of the designs are either black or white, as this is the original colour of carrier bags in Burkina Faso where the products are created.
In this design, the body is made by hand crocheting threads from discarded plastic bags, by women in Burkina Faso. It takes between 5-7 days to create this design and uses approximately 100 carrier bags.
A versatile piece, can also be used as a plant pot, magazine rack, storage basket - endless use for this creative piece.
