*This basket is "Not Quite Perfect." All baskets are handwoven and imperfections naturally add character, however these baskets have not quite made the cut to sell at full retail price. Please read each specific basket description closely as all sales are final, no returns. Returns will only be allowed if baskets are not as described.

Hello, I am a squished basket. This often happens in transport as I am the last basket of a row, at the bottom of a stack, squished into a corner or have a lot of weight on me. I am still extremely beautiful and functional. Love me as I am, or you are welcome to soak me in boiling water (I am fully waterproof) then stuff with towels to try bounce me back into shape a bit. Sometimes this works well or I may be quite stubborn as I have been squished for a whole month travelling to Australia from Myanmar. I hope you can appreciate my wonkiness as unique :) In my particular case, I am generally a bit wonky, including my handles, and I have a couple of little squished sections, particularly in one corner. Please look at my photos carefully (even though this is hard to photograph!) to see my dints.
Approximate size: L:36cm D:20cm H:31cm H(with handle):44cm
*There might be slight variation up to 2cm as each basket is individually handwoven.
XL Market baskets are perfect for weekly grocery shops, fresh fruit and veg (particularly large leafy vegetables), picnics and family beach days (easy to clean and fully waterproof). Good size for a laptop, paperwork, art projects, supplies and storage around the house. Pali Baskets are super strong and durable. Large baskets can hold up to 10kg.
The Burmese traditional weaving methods have been passed down for generations.
Each Pāli basket is individually handwoven from a combination of new, reused and recycled pallet strapping. The base and handles are made from bamboo and rattan purchased from local farmers. Recycled materials are not always available but we are continually working on new ways to make this more achievable.
Baskets are fully recyclable at the end of their very long lives. Contact us for information on how to recycle correctly.
