Basketware Project





BASKETWARE PROJECT

The Bodj fair trade basketware initiative supports a number of basket weaving projects on the outskirts of Phnom Penh and in the province of Kratie. A mixture of indigenous materials is used from bamboo and rattan to rush and water hyacinth – all are locally and sustainably sourced. Age old weaving techniques are used to create a variety of traditional and adapted designs and production is kept deliberately small-scale in order that the eco-systems in which the villagers live are not disturbed.
