Handwoven from fine baobab, one of a kind, made by women artisans in african villages.
Manabaskets are hand woven sisal, yarn and baobab collections, sourced from women basket weaving co-operatives in Africa. When you purchase a Manabasket, 100% of the wholesale profit is given to Manasprings Inc, an Australian charity, empowering women in Kenya who care for vunerable and marginalised communities.
Tradition informs us that a basket must never be empty. It is always the carrier of not just a single story, but of many stories, holding gifts of kindness, generosity, and love. So, when taking your basket to a friend's home, carry something in it to give to the owner of the home. And, when leaving, your friend is to place something inside the basket to take with you. This way, the tradition of giving continues, and the basket carries those gifts from heart to heart, and from home to home.
Manasprings buys all of its handcrafted baskets directly from local women's weaving groups to ensure fair trade prices are paid immediately to every women. When you purchase a basket, you're helping Manasprings to care for women. In this spirit, women at the grassroots are empowered to make decisions for their own wellbeing,and for the greater good of their families and communities.
