The weavers are calling this beautiful creation, Tisanie Tia (Unusual Tree Basket).
Sometimes trees struggle in the hot and dry conditions of the Sahel. They start to assume unusual shapes as they climb and, even more so, if their bark is harvested for medicines.
I love these baskets and how the weavers have connected their presence to the arid country which they call home.
Bring a "Strange Tree" to your home and let it whisper it's stories of the Sahel.
The weaver of this Baba Tree product will receive a 15% commission on the retail price in addition to what they were paid upon completion.
