Laundry baskets back in stock

When we brought back our first batch of wopper-sized laundry baskets from Bolgatanga in northern Ghana, we were a bit sceptical: would they sell or not?

These baskets are big - as in VERY BIG. And because we pay top price for all of our baskets - ensuring the weavers get a good and fair return for their creative labour - these baskets are quite expensive.

But surprise, surprise. Our customers like them so much we can't replenish our stock quickly enough.

Check 'em out... but be quick: Bolga Laundry Baskets

Magie's Postcard Collection

Magie always tries to keep busy when we're on the road in Africa. To fill those long hours waiting for transport or queueing on borders, what does she do? She gets out her scraps of fabric and gets stitching!  Introducing Magie's Postcard Collection: small handstitched quilts she makes while we're travelling.

This one - Postcard from Sirigu - is Magie's interpretation of the painted house motifs in Sirigu village in northern Ghana.
