These wonderful baskets, in the colours bright green are part of our new collection. They are made by Hermine`s family and other families from her village in Ampangabe.
Buying one of the baskets simultaneously supports the families in Ampangabe. It stabilises their livelihoods and decreases the dependence on their farm work, which generates very little income, especially in the winter.
The baskets are made out of the fibers from the Raffia palm. In a very advanced procedure, the Raffia gets harvested, washed, colored, dried and finally processed into raffia mats, baskets or other commodities. Some of the baskets can vary in form and size because they are made from various people.
Also, the colors could bleach out when leaving them in harsh sunlight.
The Boîte baskets are available in two sizes.
S: 11cm high 14cm width
M: 15cm high 21cm width
