Through great pains, we received a small shipment of exquisite handmade Tuareg date palm baskets from Niger.
Each all natural tote is handcrafted from date palm leaves by a rural woman in the central Agadez region of Niger, West Africa. Subtle leather straps reinforce the bag's bottom and secure its braided leather straps. A single row of naturally dyed fiber adds a touch of color to the top of the tote.
The organization GIE-Danie coordinates artisan activities in Niger, providing market access and support for thousands of craftspeople. Through their assistance, we are happy to bring this limited collection of very special baskets to you.
