Since wire baskets are woven by many men due to the difficult nature of weaving wire, they are able to stay home on their tribal lands instead of moving to cities to look for work. In the rural groups we work with, the family units are preserved so that the weavers and their families can live more traditional lifestyles.
These baskets are unusual because they are woven from the top down, rather than from the bottom up.
The baskets are beautiful!!! I was very pleased with the quality, and especially, the color!!! They made a wonderful display, all 5 together, on a purple covered table outside our shop!!!! Many stopped to admire, and we sold two this morning.
Your company is AWESOME! I am so pleased with my order. The basket is better than I expected. Perfectly BEAUTIFUL, so well made, packed wonderfully and fast shipping! You all are GREAT and I'm very pleased these beautiful ladies get remunerated for their dedicated efforts!
