These extraordinarily Beautiful, Vibrantly Colourful and Sophisticatedly Woven baskets, will add colour and life to any home.
These baskets have been handcrafted by Artisans in a remote West African village. It is a testament to human endeavour, talent and creativity that a select group of enlightened mothers can produce such unique African Antiquities from such poor and deprived surroundings. Each basket is unique, their character stemming from imagination and therefore no two baskets are alike. The dried grass emanates a sweet aroma that brings the scent to accompany the aesthetic beauty of the piece. We strive to both promote the unique works of these women whilst also improving their financial status by ensuring they are monetarily rewarded, so rest assured that whilst you are purchasing a piece of art, you are also uplifting a community, strengthening the matriarchy and restoring dignity through independence. Each basket takes hours to craft through matriculate design and sheer persistence. We aim to bring the continent closer to you and leave a little piece of Africa in your home. These pieces are the result of centuries of innovation in sync with natural resources coupled with contemporary materials to update the look and modernise it whilst remaining true to its roots.
