Pāli is an ethical brand dedicated to contributing to society in a responsible, positive, and sustainable way.

Pāli is the sacred language of Theravada Buddhism that had a profound influence on shaping the Burmese vocabulary.

Pāli hand woven baskets made in a remote village in Myanmar and are woven from a combination of new, reused and recycled colourful pallet strapping. Recycled materials are not always available but Pali are continually working on new ways to make this more achievable.  


Recycled strapping is made from plastic bottles and other plastics collected from gutters, streets and beaches. This not only helps clean up the local environment, but provides a small income for collectors. Factories are local in Myanmar and neighbouring Thailand. 

The handles of Passionfruit baskets are made from rattan (a native climbing palm with long stems) purchased from local farmers, which has been stripped of thorns, cleaned, then moulded into a round handle. The base is made from bamboo also purchased from local farmers, which is turn supports their lifestyle.

Every purchase enables the ongoing support for village families and the wider Burmese community.


Each of these amazing baskets is an individual!  Please choose by clicking on the name of the basket and not the picture!
