This item is fairly made in Africa. Each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own home and community. The fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs or haggled prices. The artisans use their earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.

Designer's Perspective

I love to use these baskets to store blankets by the sofa, firewood by the fireplace, toys in the kid's room, or extra pillows in the living room.
