These wonderful baskets, in the colour brightgreen/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 stabilizes 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 Sobika baskets are available in three sizes.
