Woven Baskets and BagsRegular price $92.00
Small weaving groups across Africa bring you ethical and stylish accessories with a transparent story. Sharing all our values, these weaving cooperatives empower women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family. When you choose one of these woven baskets you actively support these weavers and their families, by providing dignified working conditions.
Nifty Knit: Assorted Colors - each one is unique These amazingly colorful bags are woven from SOFT recycled sweaters. The weavers buy sweaters on masse, then carefully unravel them to make bundles of yarn which are re-woven around a sisal framework to the designs of the weaver. These baskets are traditionally called kiondos, and a Kenyan mother would craft a basket for her daughter upon marriage. The bags are ideal for slinging over your shoulder and keeping all your essentials in one place, and not only practical – they’re all a little bit gorgeous too. Due to the nature of how they're made and we receive them, we're unable to take on specific color requests.

To protect you from odd dye lots, odors, or allergens, yarn may not be returned. We want to be sure that each skein you get has come direct from the dyer, to the shop to you. Full priced items other than yarn may be exchanged for shop credit if Fuzzy Goat receives the item within 2 weeks of when you received the item.
To be eligible for an exchange, there must be proof of purchase, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition when Fuzzy Goat receives it. Shop credit will be for the items purchased and not inclusive of shipping. We recommend insuring your package as we cannot credit returns for items that do not arrive.
