The weavers are calling this one Tisanie Tia (Strange Tree Basket)
Sometimes trees struggle in the hot and dry conditions of the Sahel. They start to assume strange 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.
