Made from the Baobab tree, these baskets are a beautiful, earthy reminder of Africa. Using only natural colours, and woven with a much finer weave than the sisal and wool baskets, these Baobab baskets will last you a lifetime. Very strong and durable, yet light and flexible, they made a perfect over-the shoulder shopping bag or large purse. While they may look similar at first glance, each basket has its own stunning pattern and colouring. It can take up to a week to complete a basket, depending on its size and complexity. Once finished, the baskets are handed to a fundi, or tradesperson, who adds the leather handles and details. The baskets then begin their journey to us in Canada, and ultimately, on to you!
We support the creative process involved in the production of every basket. By purchasing individual creations, we support women who are using their craft to supplement their income as subsistence farmers while supporting their freedom to create.
