Indego Africa - Pink Fike Basket

$200.00

GAIA is proud to carry the handcrafted collection from Indego Africa, a social enterprise dedicated to empowering artisan women in Africa through employment, opportunity, and education.

Behind the Design: Indego Africa partners with artisans in Rwanda who make handwoven platters and baskets using raffia: a straw-like fiber that can be stripped from the inside of palm tree leaves. The fibers are found only in a special species of palm tree that grows abundantly across sub-Saharan Africa. The artisans weave the raffia fibers using a needle and thread, creating a range of shapes, designs, and products that look beautiful in natural raffia tones or when hand-dyed.
