Fair Trade Bulawayo Garlic Gourd
RRP incl. GST | Trade price excl. GST
The Fair Trade Bulawayo Garlic Gourd is made from handwoven Ilala palm.
We are proud to be distributing these African Fair Trade Gourd Baskets. All baskets are woven in an ancient traditional manner by Ndebele women.
The weaving tradition is carried through generations when women gather under a tree to discuss the issues of the day and to share and solve problems. Children play nearby and try their hand at weaving.
Ndebele women are often the breadwinner of their extended family. In rural Africa, basket weaving is done in between other household chores. The money received for basket-weaving means a cash income which results in greater independence and empowerment for the Ndebele women.
The baskets are hand-crafted, no templates or moulds are used, each basket is therefore unique. The hand-made element is evident and is celebrated. Please be aware that irregularities and creative inputs are encouraged and no two baskets are alike.
