Product Description

  • Diameter: Approximately 13 1/2"
  • Depth: Approximately 4 1/2"
  • Color: Natural and Gray
  • Country of Origin: Tanzania

This beautiful fair trade basket is handwoven from natural fibers. It is about 13 1/2" in diameter and 4 1/2" deep, and functions equally well as a fruit bowl or displayed as a work of art. The incorporation of gray cloth along the rim of the basket is what grabs your attention, as you notice the subtle contrast with the natural straw fiber. It is produced by WomenCraft, a cooperative of artisans in rural Tanzania. 

About the producers: WomenCraft is a non-profit organization that operates in Ngara, Tanzania, producing baskets, trivets, and other décor items from natural fibers and fabrics indigenous to East Africa. It began as a small pilot project of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2004, and is now a thriving enterprise that employs over 300 women and exports products around the world. It is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
