A super stylish basket, hand woven from water hyacinth.
Water hyacinth is an invasive weed which clogs the water ways in parts of Indonesia.
Handmade by skilled weavers working with Pekerti Nusantara, a fair trade Traid Aid partner in Indonesia. Through building successful family businesses, and collaborating with Pekerti to access fair trade markets, the rurally-based artisans of Pekerti have been able to remain in their communities rather than migrating to the cities. Small numbers of both male and female artisans make up the family-based artisan groups, sharing skills and collaborating to bring positive benefits for people and planet.
