The villagers use traditional basket weaving techniques to attach sustainably harvested rattan to the plastic pieces.
Fair trade organisation Preda commissioned the project.
Here's some more information from Kehrer:
Designed by Cordula Kehrer and commissioned by fair trade NGO Preda, these whimsical wastebaskets are made by the indigenous Aeta people of the Philippines using traditional basket weaving techniques.
Made with sustainably harvested rattan, they achieve simple and unpretentious shapes that catch the eye.
This project, which combines hand-woven natural wickerwork and colourful plastic, also asks us to consider larger questions about the nature of design, the role of the hand-made, and the place of craft-based cultures in a globalised economy.
