Whilst mass produced baskets are bland,
in ours you will immediately recognize character and life.

Volume production of very cheap baskets has eroded many marvellous traditions of authentic basket-making, but baskets properly made are utilitarian objects of great beauty and practicality, which last for many years.

The design of traditional baskets has evolved over centuries – you can hardly improve on a traditional basket.

Our baskets come from basket-makers' cooperatives in Uganda, Bangladesh and the Philippines, some of which have been our partners since our origins over 30 years ago.

Bakbak is the rich dark brown bark of the abaca plant. The bark naturally falls off the plant whilst a new bark grows underneath. Harvested abaca («Manila hemp»), a very strong fibre, is the central trunk of the plant.

Until the bright idea to use the bark to weave baskets, bakbak was considered waste. Years ago, One Village encouraged a local social project to develop this basket-making idea so that livelihoods could be developed for the benefit of landless poor. The idea worked, and the resulting cooperative society continues today as a significant service to that community.

The natural look of this «Seafibre™» is
its gorgeous rich colouring.

    To make our baskets, the fibre is tightly and evenly bound in coils, then sewn to make the shapes.
    Our Seafibre™ collection are exclusive One Village designs made for us in village cooperative societies in rural hamlets of western Bangladesh, not far from the India border.
    Making these baskets is often the only source of cash income for the people of this remote area.
