Nkuku Mendi Basket - Small

Nkuku Mendi Basket - Small


For me, buying things for my home are things I intend to keep for years, if not forever and be able to pass them down to my sibling's kids. Things should 'spark joy' in your home so I buy once, to last!


Why I Love This


These BEAUTIFUL storage baskets are next level amazing for a natural way to store your precious belongings at home! Organisation is key to 'spark joy' (if you know, you know) and these baskets will add style to your home whilst adding to the space!

Handmade from seagrass is not only eco-friendly but it is hard wearing making it practical and eye-catching! make them both practical and eye-catching.

Seagrass is a highly durable, moisture-resistant and biodegradable material, making it the perfect alternative to plastic tubs and it will break back down into the ground when it finally reaches the end of it's life.

            Nkuku UK Warehouse to Plastic Freedom:

            • As of November 2019, all plastic void fill has been removed from our retail deliveries.
            • We have replaced our small boxes with recyclable paper mail bags. This has reduced the amount of void space and reduced the amount of cardboard used in our deliveries.
            • We have made a design change to our retail boxes; this has reduced our use of cardboard by 4 tonnes per year.
            • We are using recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard., we have also designed the boxes with a stylish print to encourage their reuse.
            • We now have a shredder at our warehouse that shreds any box that is unusable to create packaging material for ongoing deliveries. This material can then be recycled.

            Recent initiatives include:

            • Replacing bubble wrap with corrugated cardboard
            • Removing polystyrene from ALL packaging by 2021
