These adorable paper boxes are handcrafted in Vietnam. Adapted from a traditional basket-making technique, these pieces are made using recycled magazines and posters discarded from a printing company. Artisans form the paper into flat strips, dip them in a glue mixture, and hang them to dry. After this they re-wet the strips and coil them into a bowl form. The strips are held together with the glue, forming a sturdy vessel.

Any cat-lover would enjoy this kitty. The largest of the three boxes, it is about 2.75" x 2.75" x 3" to the tips of its pointed ears.

Each of these items is different. The images shown are sample photos and do not show the exact item you are purchasing. Because each is handmade using upcycled materials, you should understand that the product you receive will vary in appearance.
