Art Baskets

This exquisite basketry collection showcases the extraordinary skills of a small group of weavers: The Master Weavers - women and men, young and old.. all born with an innate talent and desire to create! To watch the weavers create these extraordinary art-pieces is a beautiful thing indeed - like a rhythmic dance of strength, softness and their exceptional skills. The weavers become completely immersed in their basket, both figuratively and literally - it’s as if they almost become one.

New designs, techniques and dye materials emerge over time as our artisans continue to innovate, evolve as weavers and understand better the “elephant grass” they so exquisitely weave by hand. Evolution of our baskets are never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be useful, beautiful and ethical.

Each piece in this collection comes direct from the hands of the artisans we collaborate with - energetic, colorful, purposeful. Each luscious curve you discover is the handprint or signature of the Master Weaver who has expertly handcrafted your basket, we celebrate the unique differences in each and every art piece.

Basketry is art, we believe.

The weavers of these baskets will receive a 15% commission on the retail price in addition to what they were paid upon completion of a basket.
