MODERN DESIGN: At Indego Africa, we are dedicated to preserving the integrity of artisan crafts and traditional African artistry while creating modern pieces that connect with the global market.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL DECOR: Indego Africa’s plateau baskets are the ideal housewarming gift and a great shape and size to be used as a fruit basket, hung in a cluster on a gallery wall, or placed as an accent piece around the home or office.
ARTISAN CRAFTED: Indego Africa’s plateau baskets are handmade by skilled artisan women in Rwanda using the traditional coil weaving technique. The result are durable baskets in a range of patterns and colors. Each basket takes 24 to 40 hours to complete.
NATURAL MATERIALS: This plateau basket is handcrafted from sisal and sweetgrass, locally-harvested in Rwanda. Sisal, extracted from inside of agave plants, is sun-dried before being hand dyed and woven into our signature baskets. Sweetgrass, an integral element of Rwandan weaving, is found at the center of our baskets.
WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT: Since 2007, Indego Africa has been providing women-owned businesses in Africa with a global market for their handmade products and investing in their education. All profits and donations are invested into business and vocational training programs for our artisan partners.
