Wild, Hand-Woven Baskets

Keep jewelry, paperclips, keys, pins and other small trinkets all nuzzled up with these adorable hand-woven baskets. Far friendlier than your average basket, these personality-packed straw pots let you stow small, easy-to-lose objects safely within their little bellies.

These sweet containers were handmade in Swaziland by members of Tintsaba, a group created in 1985 by Sheila Freemantle with the purpose of improving the lives of rural women living there.

Sold separately.

Made in

Sheila Freemantle created Tintsaba in 1985. Sheila believes that creating an income generating opportunity for these women will help them take charge of their lives, both personally and professionally. With Tintsaba, these women have the chance to hone in on their craft and this practice culminates in highly refined objects like these charming, handcrafted baskets. Using these acquired skills, these craftswomen can teach new recruits or even transfer these skills to other professions guaranteeing a virtuous cycle of continuous development for all the producers.

bookcloth, sisal

      Comments about Hand-Woven Frog and Bush Baby Baskets:

      I purchased this product to support Tintsaba. Hopefully the income the Swazi women receive is truly improving the quality of their lives. The quality of the baskets is excellent and as a collector of frog pieces the design fetching.
