The NATURAL white stripe table basket with its bold, creamy white stripe on a natural grass base will bring instant ethical style to the table. Hand-woven and wonderfully organic in shape, this round table basket can be mixed and matched with other woven tableware in this collection. Fill yours with fruit, bread, cutlery or napkins!
These fair trade table baskets are carefully hand woven from indigenous lutindzi grass in rural Swaziland. This wiry grass grows wild in the mountainous regions, and brings a naturally waxy finish which makes it ideal for producing water and stain-resistant tableware.
Weavers working within a Swazi weaving cooperative create these beautiful baskets, working within a social enterprise called Gone Rural Bomake. This organization currently works with over 770 artisans across 53 communities spread over three regions of Swaziland. Each group is specifically trained in crafts that utilise the natural materials available in their region. Gone Rural have been empowering women, supporting children and creating sustainable employment since 1970 - and your purchase keeps this movement alive. You can meet the weavers from Swaziland here.
