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.
We are really, really enjoying your dazzling new baskets, and can't wait to get our "basket table" outside in the outdoor market in May.
I just wanted to let you know that we are unpacking our recent order from you and the colors are amazing!!! We are so excited to brighten up our display and add some new styles to the mix. Thank you so much for your suggestions!
