Serve your drinks in style!
This Drinks Tray made from palm fibers is a beautiful way to introduce woven texture to your home. Timeless and functional, the Pata Tray will look great layered with tones of timber and chalky whites, paired with earthy ceramics and linens.
Handmade by fair trade artisans in a village community of Bangladesh, each piece is assembled by bundling kaisa grass; wrapping them in fine strips of date palm fibre and coiling and weaving them into shape. The women who make these pieces work from home and a genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures they are paid fairly for their time and skills, among many other benefits.
Meet the makers
The Dharma Door has been commissioning the incredible skills of female artisans in remote, rural communities since 2004. Their ultimate goal is to genuinely empower as many people as possible out of the cycle of poverty. By working with not-for-profit NGOs on the ground and combining contemporary design, enduring quality and unfailing ethics, The Dharma Door creates products that tell a much bigger story than just the item itself. "The more we trade, the more artisans we are able to provide sustainable work for. Through this approach, we are able to achieve the greatest impact" Shannon Sheedy, Founder of The Dharma Door.
We recommend vacuuming your tray or occasionally shaking it to remove dirt particles. Do not rub stains as this may spread the stain and loosen the grass fibers. Water-based spills should be blotted with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible. Oil-based or brightly colored spills may not be easily removed - we recommend a gentle eco-friendly cleaner. Dried Kaisa grass may lighten slightly as the fiber ages.
