Mira Basket - Small

Free Gift

Sculptural and organic in appearance, the handwoven Mira Basket in Small is designed to be a stylish and functional small laundry or toy basket. However you choose to style it,it will add warmth and character to your home thanks to the beautiful shape and the texture of natural woven palm fibre.  

Featuring a practical fitted lid, place the small Mira Basket on the floor, under a console or bench, or on a low shelf to keep your belongings stowed away, while still being easily accessible. The size and firm structure of the Mira basket is ideal for holding a small amount of worn clothes between washes - especially handy for children's rooms; as a toy basket for children to access and easily tidy their toys; for pet toys; or as an attractive storage solution in any room. This basket is also perfect to style on a shelf purely for its aesthetic appeal.  

Handmade by Fair Trade artisans in a village community of Bangladesh, each Mira Basket is assembled by bundling kaisa grass; wrapping them in fine strips of date palm fibre and coiling and weaving them into shape. The women who make these pieces work from home or in communal areas of their village and a genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures they are paid fairly for their time and skills, among many other benefits.

Looking to match the small Mira Basket with other baskets from our palm fibre collection for a cohesive styling story in your home? Try the Mira Basket in Large, the low round Jala Basket, or the smaller Dhali and Buna Baskets.

    - Fine strips of date palm fibre are wrapped around the kaisa grass as the baskets are coiled and woven into shape using a large needle.
  • - This robust basket has been designed to last. Palm fibre changes colour in the sun, so be sure to keep it clear of harsh rays.
    - If you're putting a potted plant in this basket, remember to place a plastic tray underneath the plant pot to collect water.
    - To clean, we suggest you vacuum your basket or occasionally take it outside on a dry day and shake it to dislodge dirt and dust particles.
    - Blot water-based spills with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible. Do not rub stains or spills from your basket as this may spread the stain and loosen the jute fibres. For oil-based or coloured spills, please consult a specialist cleaning professional.
    - You may choose a protection treatment prior to using your basket. We recommend MicroSeal who offer a DIY protection and cleaning kit suitable for jute fibres.
