Fair trade homeware
Artisanne is the brainchild of two sisters – London-based Elizabeth, and Emma who lived in Senegal for six years. The Fair Trade baskets are skilfully handwoven in remote villages near Thiès in Senegal. And we deal directly with the 85 weavers – with no middlemen involved whatsoever. This helps to ensure that the women earn a regular, fair and secure income for their creations.
Artisanne baskets are a beautiful blend of traditional Senegalese weaving techniques, passed down from mother to daughter, and modern designs which combine to create household storage that’s stylish, practical and highly distinctive.
Our close relationship with the actual artisans allows us to design our own styles while guaranteeing the exceptional quality for which Artisanne is renowned
10% of profit donated to Journey to Learning
Once we at Artisanne heard that some of the weavers’ children were walking a round trip of 10km every day, to and from school, in up to 40C heat, we launched ‘Journey to Learning’ to provide transport. We kick-started the initiative by donating 100% from a sale of our products and now donate 10% of all profits to ensure daily school travel.
