THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: DecoArt

Country: Senegal

“The master weavers of Mekhe, Senegal produce our collection of beautiful baskets! This craft is passed down through generations of women in rural villages about two hours from Dakar. The talent, heart, and spirit of these women really translate into the energy these baskets carry. They are the backbone of their families and community. They are mothers, sisters, friends working together in small groups supporting themselves and each other, it is truly inspiring to know them and an honor to get to work with them. We have been building a relationship with them for over six years now and their craft continues to amaze us. By adding their baskets into your home, you are bringing in a piece of real functional art.”
