Abstract Form Plateau


Product Description

Indego Africa woven abstract form plateau. Hand woven and locally sourced natural fibers, sweetgrass & sisal, hand-dyed, loop on back for hanging or as a basket. Hand dyed in a variety of colors including lavender, yellow, and orange.

Behind the Design: Our signature sweetgrass baskets are handwoven with heart by artisans in Rwanda and Ghana. Practicing a time-honored Rwandan weaving technique, the artisans use a needle and thread to wrap hand-dyed strands of sisal (the inside fibers of an agave plant) around bunches of sweetgrass to create tightly coiled, durable baskets in an impressive range of patterns and colors. Depending on the size and shape, each basket can take one weaver anywhere from 60-70 hours to make!

The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world. Yet the majority of artisans are women who lack access to export markets, business skills, and the financial tools needed to run successful, global enterprises.

We are dedicated to changing that by investing 100% of our profits into education programs for the women who handcraft our products and youth in their communities. Since 2007, we've provided over 1,100 artisans and 250 young people in Rwanda & Ghana with employment opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and consistent access to the global export market.
