HANDMADE IN MADAGASCAR

Versatile and thoughtfully crafted, this market basket is a chic carryall for farmers market runs, grocery trips, beach days, and beyond.

This piece is woven by artisans in Madagascar, the majority of whom are women who have not previously had access to a formal education. They practice time-honored weaving, crocheting, and braiding techniques with locally sourced materials. Artisans earn fair wages, support their families and their children’s schooling, and further develop their skills.
