About the Brand
These baskets are by products of Carrying Capacity, a durational project Gaye Chan began in 2012 that stemmed from a chance encounter at a produce distribution company. With the expressed purpose to get a case of overripe tomatoes to make sauce, she noticed heaps of baling straps. As commodities move across the globe, baling straps like these are found binding box to box, paper to paper, and everything to pallets. Used once and discarded into the waste stream. Unable to simply walk away, Chan gave herself the task of figuring out how to reuse them. After watching countless youtube videos on basket making methods from around the world, she managed to develop a basic weaving technique. Eleven years and more than a thousand baskets later, she continues to extend the life of this ‘waste’ material.
