Fair Trade Baskets! {Product Spotlight}

Basket 7If you’re anything like me, you have loads of stuff sitting around your house. Stuff that would be useful right next to you when you need it—such as warm blankets on chilly nights. However, I often keep warm blankets thrown in the closet so as to keep my house as tidy as possible. Same goes for TV remotes (which we have about 18 of, and I don’t know how to work any of them), etc.

So, how about purchasing a lovely variety of our Seven Hopes hand-woven baskets instead? In all sizes and colors, these gorgeous catch-alls will hold magazines, pet toys, towels, and more. We even have a beautiful selection of baskets made especially to hold your laundry. Now there’s a chore that could use a little color and fun infused into it, right? A brightly colored hamper can only help that situation!

See my favorites, below, then head to the “For the Home” section of our Website to start shopping!

About the origins of some of these stunning baskets:

{Wolof women in Senegal, West Africa, weave the beautifully simple traditional African baskets from a local grass called njodax and plastic strips used to make bazin mats. Weaving fair trade baskets provides an important source of income for Wolof families in this part of Senegal.}

{Some of the featured baskets are handwoven by artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana. Each bolga basket is beautiful and unique, designed with a sturdy handle and a thick base, perfect for use at your local farmers market or on a picnic. A great fair trade gift that gives back to the artisans who created it.}
