These amazing hand-woven fair trade Baskets are one of a kind. Not only collectible but stunning in craftsmanship and beauty.
In an exacting process, master weavers in rural Swaziland use a small needle to wrap brightly coloured sisal thread around the coils of these intricate baskets – each is a truly remarkable work of art and takes up to 50 hours to craft.
Tintsaba jewellery products are handmade by a women’s group in Swaziland a tiny, land-locked country in Southern Africa. Their items are hand woven from Sisal Agave sisalensis, an invasive weed that grows throughout the country. The sisal is processed using little water and GOTs certified organic dyes. Tintsaba endeavours to be sustainable in all areas of production.
The women who make Tintsaba jewellery receive training enabling them to become master weavers, silversmiths or managers, giving them the chance to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
Their products are recognised around the world for their outstanding quality as well as the beautiful story attached to them.
