THE demand for bamboo baskets made by a family business in Ottwin Township, Bago Region has become higher as local farmers are harvesting beans.
Demand has risen in Kyauktaka, Kyaukkyi and Pyu townships.
The basket makers are selling a bamboo basket at 1,200 Kyats. They sell around 40 baskets per day.
Since we cut and weave them ourselves, the family is employed and can make savings, said Tun Naing who sells baskets from Ottwin Township.
