Magnolia Plateau Baket by Indego Africa
Indigo Africa's signature sweetgrass baskets are handwoven with heart by artisans in Rwanda. 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!

Indego Africa partners with groups of artisan women in Rwanda & Ghana to create a range of handcrafted products that bring beauty into the world through modern design, time-honored techniques, and genuine artisan skill. We believe that education is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. That’s why we provide artisan women & young people in Africa with the training they need to build and sustain independent livelihoods. 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.
