Unique Fairtrade Woven 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!

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 hand-print 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.

Our weavers are paid well for weaving our baskets, they will receive 15% of the retail price as a commission in addition to what they were initially paid.
