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.
Thank you so much for all your help the last 6 months in getting the great products from Baskets of Africa to our store whenever I needed them, especially that last frantic order!! Thanks again for all your help, your product does so well and we look forward to working with you in the upcoming year!
