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.
Thanks for rapid fulfillment of order and excellent service! Baskets are beautiful and just about sold out before we even got them to the store! (office staff and friends). Will be ordering more soon, in hopes of actually getting them to our retail outlet!
Thanks so much for providing these wonderful baskets - we're having a blast showing and selling them.
