Upcycling the Everyday
Designed by German creative Cordula Kehrer and commissioned by fair trade non-governmental organisation Preda, these unique wastebaskets are made by the indigenous Aeta people of the Philippines.
Using traditional basket-weaving techniques, the new Bow Bins collection is produced by recycling old plastic bins and weaving them together with sustainably harvested rattan. Their aim is to make us consider the role of the handmade in everyday objects, and the place of craft-based cultures in a globalised economy.
The collection will be available to purchase from June 2012 from New York-based design producers, Areaware.
