The Woven Market Basket Bag
The two-tone shopper market basket is great for everyday use. Black and sand-colored sisal are hand-dyed using traditional techniques.
Sisal grass is harvested and rolled by hand. After the twine is made, it is hand-dyed in large vats. Only then can artisans begin weaving.
The women behind the baskets have woven from a young age as this craft is passed down through grandmothers to mothers to daughters.
Basket weaving provides flexible income during the dry seasons when subsistence farming becomes unsustainable.
Material: Sisal and Leather
