The weavers depend on basket income to sustain themselves beyond what food they grow as subsistence farmers. They often use the money earned to pay school fees for their children.
In Southern Zimbabwe, basket weavers use thick, heavy coils to weave sturdy coiled baskets from sisal and local grasses.
Your products are beautiful. I sold two large Ghana baskets (that arrived this week) on the day I set them in the shop. Looks like I'll be placing another order soon. You offer many exquisite things on your website. I've never been to Africa -- never wanted to go -- until I've seen the work coming from the hands of artisans who live there. Wow. Thank you for your selectivity and exceptional service. Such a pleasure doing business with you.
Just received the baskets. They are absolutely beautiful!!! Love them. I would keep every single one for myself. Hope to sell them all soon and come back for more.
