This sturdy oval open top storage basket is a bit smaller than our ever so popular kntting baskets.
Woven from cattail stalks and strips of turquoise and white plastic that are either salvaged from fraying prayer mats and rugs or purchased new at a Dakar mat factory, this little sewing basket is crafted to beautifully stow your hand sewing or to hold objects on the tabletop in any room of the home.
Makes a great gift for the knitter in your life!

This item is fairly made in Africa. It has made its way here today thanks to the hard work of Leslie Mittelberg building a network of artisans across Africa. Each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own home and community. The fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs or haggled prices. The artisans use their earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
What better way to give than from one's hands to another. Our spirited handmade store offers gift ideas that support communities and connect cultures. Stories are shared through our handmade gifts from all over the world.

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a market based approach to solving social, economic and environmental injustice. Under Fair Trade standards, producers in developing countries are afforded economic opportunities to better their living conditions and have more control over their own lives. At the same time, environmental sustainability is given high priority as a key element in growth for current and future generations. Learn more about Fair Trade >
