‘Stand up bag’ for smart storage and swift transportation. Use as a flexible hamper or laundry basket.
“Nepal Projects grew from our desire to use Menu as a platform for making a positive difference. Many young Nepali women from poor families risk being lured into prostitution. A good alternative can be this collapsible laundry basket as it saves you space when not in use.
Through education of children and employment of young women we offer a sound and viable alternative. The Nepal Projects is our way to celebrate great craftsmanship, while helping vulnerable workers secure a better future for themselves and their families.” – Bjarne Hansen, owner & founder, Menu A/S
Menu has launched a new trade initiative, Nepal Projects. Developed in collaboration with aid organization Danida, Nepal Projects provides much-needed fair employment and future opportunities in one of the world’s poorest countries by combining traditional fabric working skills with a contemporary Scandinavian design aesthetic.
The result makes up part of our new collection of home accessories: Exquisite hand-weaved scarves and blankets, puffy pillows, practical desktop containers, roomy laundry bags, and cool teddy bears for kids and grown-ups alike. Himalayan cashmere, merino wool, leather and cotton of the finest quality are the main ingredients in the collection. Bridging traditions of East and West, the carefully crafted items are finished in muted grey, blue, green and red tones to suit a minimalistic Scandinavian home decoration style.
