Pompom Cabled Bin
This multi-purpose storange bin is handknit with unbleached cotton in a beautiful cable pattern. It's scalloped edges are trimmed with bright fluffy pompoms in fuschia, teal, lime and aqua (also all made by hand!). The inside is lined with natural canvas. It's a perfect piece to brighten up any room!
It measures approximately 10 inches tall, with a 36-inch circumference/11.5-inch diameter. Do remember that each piece is unique and handmade, and may vary slightly in size.
Each bin is hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces in Ifugao (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
