ABOUT THE ARTISANS

The women who handcraft our pine needle baskets go out together, often to quite distant places, to collect the longest pine needles they can find and then stitch them together with raffia and native grasses. As beneficiaries of Fair Trade, the women earn regular income, allowing them to feed their families, send their children to school and harbor hopes for a better future.
