This innovative bamboo basket is an excellent addition to any kitchen or living room. Made entirely of recycled, single-use bamboo chopsticks from restaurants (they've been sanitized at extremely high temperature and pressure and then dyed with tea), it's perfect for holding fruit, napkins, bread, mail or anything else for that matter. When not in use, it folds up nearly flat for storage, shipping as a gift or easy carrying to a picnic, party or pot luck. Did we mentioned it's an excellent conversation piece, too?
After studying in China for several years, American designer Brian Parks saw the potential of recycled single-use chopsticks as a medium and is always thinking of new products he can make with them.
