The Burmese rice storage basket has over the years become one of Sop Moei Arts best selling baskets. As the name suggests, this basket has its origins in Burma as a storage container for rice. For contemporary use, however, this basket is very versatile. The lid of the basket is flat, and when removed, can be used as a tray. As it comes in several sizes, it is also ideal placed next to or in front of a sofa as a coffee table. We also sell glass tops which increases the surface area of the table without hiding any of the beautiful bamboo details beneath.
