The base material of the soft plate are thin long strips of pre-consumer hemp scraps from HEMPEA. They are crocheted into shape, using a re-dyed recycled yarn.
The plate is created using a simple crocheting technique, where the fabric scraps are wrapped by each stitch during the crocheting process. The plate is basically a long fabric coil, spiralled into shape and fixed in place by the yarn. Small variations of shape can stem from the slight differences in the thickness of the scrap fabric strips. This way a quite spontaneous, semi-controlled organic shape emerges.
The soft plate works perfectly as a low-rimmed basket for storing your keys and wallet in the hallway. It is also a great base to style some of your favorite decor pieces with, for example in a shelf or on top of a sideboard. It also makes for a great combination with some of our baskets to create a layered effect.
HEMPEA is a finnish sustainable brand, creating eco-friendly home textiles from 100% hemp fabrics. This product is created with some of their pre-consumer scraps - cut-offs in the production process of their bedding and other products. Their high quality, ethically made hemp fabrics are too precious to waste, so we took all the small and odd shape pieces and created a small collection of unique Wasteless Wonders products with them.
