Proceeds from the sale of these baskets help to provide healthcare, school fees, and community buildings for the weavers and their children.

Bolgatanga is the largest town in the Upper East region of Ghana, about 20 miles South of the Burkina Faso border and very close to the edge of the Sahara Desert. The climate is extremely dry except for one rainy season which lasts about 2 or 3 months, making agriculture very difficult. As a result, basket weaving is the main income for this region.

The supplier is a member of the Fair Trade Federation. For 20 years they have used Fair Trade principles in all their dealings and have worked with many of the same artisans for over a decade, supporting them and their extended families while working together to bring these African baskets to the American market. One of the greatest parts of importing from Africa is seeing the positive impact they have on the many artisans and their families.
