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.
May I just say that I currently work with 49 different vendors, both here in the states and around the world. And you are, without a doubt, the most professional person I have the pleasure of working with.
Thanks for sending all the beautiful colorful baskets. The past shipments are great! The baskets are flying out of the store!!!
