Who Makes the Baskets?
The baskets are handmade to order by our partner artisan organisation in Cambodia. They are perfect for cats and small dogs.
The products are made from sustainable rattan. It takes one artisan about 8-10 days to finish one basket and the traditional techniques have been handed down from generation to generation.
A large number of Cambodian women living in villages are unemployed. Even if they have a job, their income is less than USD 2.50 per day. As most families have between 3-5 children, it makes it almost impossible for them to survive.
Your purchase provides these talented Cambodian artisans with a sustainable income, empowers their creativity and offers them a safe working environment, where their views and opinions matter.
All items are handmade and unique – therefore, slight variations may occur.
