Hand Woven Market
Handwoven Grass Basket, market-style baskets are traditionally used to carry produce to and from markets and farms. These baskets are extremely durable and strong, and can hold up to 50 lbs of fresh produce.
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.
Our baskets also benefit your community. An estimated 500 billion to a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year, and Americans use one plastic bag per person per day. Our baskets are strong, reusable and biodegradable, and are a sustainable alternative to plastic shopping bags that are filling land-fills.
Purchasing our baskets helps us reach our goals of economic empowerment, gender equality and preserving indigenous knowledge.
FYI- Each bag is different the colors or designs vary.
