Product description

Introduce warm and rusty tones to your home with a BONGO basket, made from handwoven sisal fibres which are coloured using all-natural dyes

Produced in three sizes, there’s one for every storage conundrum! The weavers behind these ethical baskets use them in their own homes for keeping foodstuffs such as maize, potatoes and onions off the ground.

Variations

These BONGO baskets also make excellent woven planters and can be deployed all over the home for keeping toiletries, cutlery, napoleons. baby supplies and even hats, gloves and slippers organised. These earthy- coloured baskets are woven by craftswomen working within a network of village cooperatives in Tanzania. The income-generating art of weaving is typically passed down the female ancestral line, though these Tanzanian weavers are also trained in new weaving methods. The sturdy milulu grasses used to produce these woven storage baskets can be found locally in swamps and riverbeds, and some cooperatives grow the grasses specifically for weaving.

The income that weavers earn from their baskets helps families pay school fees and medical bills as well as making home improvements and buying livestock and poultry for farming. During the dry seasons, weaving helps bridge the gap in earnings that many families feel. Basket sales are led by cooperative committee members and profits are reinvested for the benefit of the communities and product development. In recent years, these groups have purchased communal amenities like solar lighting, kerosene lamps, land, warehouses and raw materials for producing further baskets with basket sale profits.
