WomenCraft Refugee Storage Basket/Planter - Small Yellow Color Block
This cute little basket can be used as a planter, a pencil cup or storage for small items. Days to weave: 1 day.
This basket is part of WomenCraft's MADE51 Collection, the global brand of refugee-made products created by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The feed sacks in which refugees receive their monthly food rations are recycled and woven with the grasses native to the region, which gives these basket its white color.
As part of MADE51, WomenCraft works with Burundian refugee women who recently returned to their home communities after spending several years in refugee camps in Tanzania. Weaving with WomenCraft means that they can continue to generate income and maintain their livelihood as they return to Burundi. Through WomenCraft, over 600 artisans advance themselves, raise stronger families, stimulate their communities and inspire the world around them.
Measurements: Approximately 4" high x 4" diameter.
Fairly traded and handmade in Tanzania.
