Part of a design collaboration between HAY and artist Laila Gohar that celebrates the joy of meeting family and friends over a good meal, the Sobremesa Market Basket is a spacious shopping basket designed for trips to the farmer's market or grocery store. Handmade in bast, with a bright red fastening detail, the multifunctional basket can also be used for other kinds of shopping, picnics or household storage.
