These wonderful baskets with the colors green/nature 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 especially in the winters generates very low income.
The baskets are made out of the fibers from the Raffia palms. In a very advanced procedure, the Raffia gets harvested, washed, colored, dried and finally processed into 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 Sahafa baskets are available in three sizes.
S: 7cm high 31cm width
M: 8cm high 37cm width
L: 9cm high 38cm width
