Handmade ethically produced woven baskets, bags, sun hats and products for the home - eco friendly and stylish for everyday living.
They are handmade in the villages and homes of artisans in Madagascar and Morocco. Everything is made with natural sustainable products. The leather handles on some styles are the by-product from meat production. Nothing goes to waste and at the end of their working life, these products will biodegrade.
A number of new items will be on display - baskets, bags and a wide range of raffia hats, in both natural and many bright colours - as well as best sellers. We are one of very few wholesale importers of this style of goods.
Many items have featured in magazines such as the Saturday Times Magazine, Red Magazine, Metro, Homes & Gardens, Coast and plenty more.
