Return to Sender’s mission is life-changing – literally. The Dutch brand provides a platform for vulnerable women to share their craft, and each home accessory’s profit is ‘returned to sender’. The Bucket Basket Medium is woven from water hyacinth basket by women in and around Yogyakarta, Indonesia. They braid the dried stems using traditional techniques, and this design was created in collaboration with designer Toya Verberne.


Return to Sender has a clear and honourable mission: to help women in disadvantaged countries create a better life through their craft. After returning from a trip to India and feeling frustrated by what she saw – talented women creating beautiful accessories, without the opportunity to sell them – founder Katya set about bridging that gap. Together with 7 of the best Dutch designers, she handpicks female artisans and gives them a platform to create a better life and future. The design process is a collaborative one, and the end result – handcrafted vases inspired by traditional techniques – helps these vulnerable women get back on their feet. Because the profits are ‘returned to sender’.
