Unique collapsible baskets made from recycled chopsticks
Annually, over a billion single-use chopsticks are thrown away across the globe. These beautiful Chopstick Folding Baskets are created using these discarded utensils.
Of course, the chopsticks are cleaned and then sanitized at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Once squeaky clean, they are then crafted into a beautiful folding design.
Space-saving design is functional and easy on the eyes
When folded flat, the Chopstick Folding Basket is only about 8" long and 2" tall (true for both the medium and large sizes). So, it won't take up a lot of room when stowed away. Of course, when you do bust out this basket (which should be daily!), you'll appreciate its eco-friendly and stylish design.
These ain't no wimpy baskets
On its own, I wouldn't trust a single chopstick over a samurai sword if I found myself in a knife fight. However, when properly configured, these recycled chopsticks create one tough basket.
Despite each individual chopstick being rigid, the complete design is quite flexible. It cradles a ten-pound weight without the slightest hint of strain.
Unique serving bowl
It's true that all baskets or bowls will equally perform the task of simply holding stuff. But, the Chopstick Folding Basket is as eye catching as it is conversation starting. So, buy two (one to be eye-catching and the other to be conversation-starting!).
Display seasonal decorations
In addition to holding fruits, vegetables, and baked goods, the Chopstick Folding Basket makes a great centerpiece for holiday or everyday decorations.
Choose from two sizes
The Chopstick Folding Basket is available in two sizes: medium and large. They are both 14" long (when unfolded), but the large is four inches wider and an inch deeper than the medium size.
For display or decoration purposes, you may find the medium size to be the perfect accent piece. For holding fruit or baked goods, we suggest the large size. However, either size is adequate for any storage task.
