Woven Storage Basket |Medium
DECORATIVE STORAGE BASKET
Beautiful handwoven patterned baskets that brighten any room. Wonderful for storage, display, and for post it holders.
FAIR TRADE AND HANDMADE
Crafted by artisans of the indigenous Penan people, each basket has a unique, intricate pattern that reflects their rich heritage. The nomadic Penan weavers practice their rattan basketry craft in tune with the magnificent nature which surrounds them. Residing in the depths of the rainforest in the Kuba'An Puak region of Borneo Island, some weavers choose to come out of the jungle only to bring their crafts.
Your purchase supports the basketry cottage industry, which has been adversely affected by overdevelopment of the Penan’s traditional lands.

JENNIFER SHUM ABELEV is the Los Angeles-based social entrepreneur behind NEEPA HUT. Her desire to make a positive impact was sparked by spending time with artisan communities in Southeast Asia. Seeing the women practice their respective crafts, she was struck by their ingenuity and perseverance, despite their humble surroundings.
Motherhood, for her, took on a new significance after spending time with these women. Consequently, she traded her career in finance for a new challenge, focused on preserving the heritage of Southeast Asia artisans through NEEPA HUT.
The crafts of our artisans shape the social fabric of their villages, and help them provide for their children and families. It is their sense of community and togetherness that Jennifer hopes to extend through NEEPA HUT’s products.
