These large decorative storage baskets are hand woven in Swaziland from indigenous and renewable grasses. They are perfect for storing magazines, toys, towels, throws and plants with a water tray under the plant pot. The neutral natural and black colour scheme works well in a contemporary setting.
Gone Rural has taken a traditional craft and renewed it with contemporary designs creating striking handcrafted baskets to cherish. Gone Rural is a social enterprise founded in the 1970s, which works with over 750 artisans in 13 groups across Swaziland – from young women to gogos (grandmothers) and often with three generations of women from one family. Gone Rural provides its artisans with self-employed, home-based work, empowering them with a sustainable income, which allows them to fulfill their traditional duties and look after their families. Purchases help support Gone Rural Bomake (meaning women) a not for profit organization which provides health, education, and empowerment programmes in Swaziland.
