Now, cotton scraps and sustainable jute fibers are woven together and sewn to create everything from rugs and baskets, to trivets.

Elephant grass grows surrounding waterholes in the Sahel region of West Africa. The strong slender leaves are harvested seasonally by the Fra Fra people of Northern Ghana, then soaked and stretched to produce a fine, supple, and extra strong fibre. Your purchase of this items helps to maintain the time-honoured craft of weaving, while continuing a long-existing fari trade relationship with these people.
