THE ORIGINAL BAMBOO FISH TRAP BASKET

The classic woven fishing trap basket that began our foray into the world of lighting and home decor. Traditionally handwoven by Thai artisans to be used as a fish trap, we noticed these beautiful baskets being made along the roadside, and one day while passing had a lightbulb moment (excuse the pun!): “I wonder if we could use these baskets as a light shade..” Fast forward nearly a decade, and here we are, crafting beautiful pendant lights for the world to enjoy, with this basket still our favorite to use.

In the many years since we started creating lighting using these beauties, many have tried to imitate (you may have even seen similar pendant shades in well-known stores), but no factory-made piece can ever match this hand-crafted original. It’s both lightweight and flexible, able to form a variety of shapes, and carries subtle imperfections due to the handmade aspect that gives each basket that unique character.

Outside of its original use, it is now seen hanging in elegant wedding lighting setups and in homes around the world as a classic bamboo pendant shade.

BEAUTIFUL BASKETS MADE FROM NOTHING BUT BAMBOO

They go by many names: rattan fish trap basket, wicker trap, and so on, but these babies are all bamboo. Handwoven in Chiang Mai, Thailand, they are little (and sometimes large) works of art. There are no other materials used to create their beautiful shape, only strips of hand-carved bamboo woven by locals. It’s this authenticity that makes them such incredible pieces—not only beautiful but rich in tradition and history.

SHAPING A FLEXIBLE FISHING TRAP BASKET OUT OF THE BOX

Enjoy a quick video showing just how flexible these baskets are. We typically package these baskets flattened a little for shipping due to their size. All it takes is a little movement and some flexing, and they ease back into their original form thanks to an incredible woven design.
