Basketville has connected with some amazing basket makers in Africa and Cambodia.
Exotic baskets from around the world
As basket collectors ourselves, we support the artistry of weavers around the world. Recently we’ve connected with some amazing basket makers in Africa and Cambodia. Our Fair Trade African baskets are handwoven in mesmerizing, color-rich tribal patterns. They come from Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Swaziland, Zambia and Botswana. Natural dyes and renewable materials like banana leaf, palm, wild grasses and vines are characteristic. Dazzling Zulu baskets are woven of brightly colored telephone wire (see photo lower right). Our Cambodian baskets are intricately woven and have a rare elegance. Styles include tatami seagrass handbags, smoked bamboo vegetable baskets, subtly patterned breadbaskets and elephant baskets (great for big washdays).
