Alaffia Handwoven African Oval Basket
Assorted Colours 1 Woven Basket
Alaffia Fair Trade Grass Baskets are hand-woven in Central Togo from native, wild-harvested savanna grasses. Our baskets are beneficial to our communities in Africa as a source of income and, more importantly, a way of preserving our indigenous knowledge. These baskets are fair trade certified by GiFFT.

Alaffia Fair Trade Grass Baskets also benefit your community. An estimated 500 billion to a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. These baskets are strong, reusable and biodegradable, and are a sustainable alternative to plastic shopping bags that are filling land-fills.

Oval baskets have two handles for convenience and security. Straighter sides and deeper allows for a variety of uses, including shopping, book bag, crafts, beach bag, picnics, etc...

Lovely! I love this company and the baskets are so nice. I have been storing children's books in them but they are so wide they would be perfect for the market. Mine came with a leather tag with country of origin on it as well as the name of the person who made it.

Beautifully made.. with braided leather handles. Sturdy... attractive and practical. Perfect for short shopping trips to our local village, or to the farmer's market. Will be useful as a Bicycle basket.. or for storage of sewing items , also.
