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.
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.
Thanks for all your work with artisans and keeping us stocked with wonderful baskets all year.
