Bridge for Africa Telephone Wire Baskets

Bridge for Africa is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting self-sufficiency and the dignity of work in rural African communities. Bridge began in 2003 with the chance meeting of an African and an American. Together they created a non-profit organization committed to Building Resources to Inspire Dignity, Growth, and Empowerment (BRIDGE) through trade. As a member of the Fair Trade Federation, Bridge pays each of their artisans fairly and treats them with dignity and respect.

Telephone Wire Baskets are hand woven by Zulu weavers, located in Elandskraal in the heart of Zululand, South Africa. The basket designs are the unique vision of each artisan and all one-of-a-kind. The baskets are often created around communal fires and a slight hint of smoke is captured in each basket. These baskets are firm, durable, and washable in warm soapy water.Purchasing this product gives the dignity of work and promotes self-sufficiency for the many telephone wire artisans in rural Africa.
