To create PK recycled plastic and rattan baskets and tableware, we collect plastic bags from clean ups or purchase plastic from locals. Next, the bags are washed and fully dried. Third, we cut the plastic into strips. Lastly, the weaving begins. Depending on the design, weaving with added plastic can take up to twice the time of traditional weaving as the rattan is first wrapped with the plastic, then woven together with standard, smaller rattan to create the final basket shape.

GOOD TO KNOW
Clean the product with a damp microfiber cloth and air dry. For baskets or trays that hold fruit or vegetables, be sure the fruit is dry before storing. For other foods, line baskets with a cloth napkin, paper towel or banana leaf to absorb any grease or oil that might be in the food.
