The art of basket weaving in Africa is ancestral. The women transmit their knowledge from generation to generation. These baskets are used in the daily life of African women.
By combining the trends of the current decoration and the traditional weaving techniques,
Kawobazaar wishes to keep this unique know-how alive.
We work with a group of women who live in the most remote areas of Senegal. The weavers work at home, and prices are set by the community, with adjustments made according to the raw materials market. A large basket can take 4 to 5 days to weave. We respect their proud art. Each basket is paid at its fair value. This work enables them to feed their families and send their children to school.
