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.
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 you so much for our first order of Baskets. We love them and the customers do too!! I am actually writing to make another order.
Shop with a conscience.
Choose Fair Trade goods.
All of our African baskets are verified Fair Trade, because we believe that indigenous people around the world should be compensated fairly for their amazing work.
