Accra Handwoven Sisal Basket

Denise George

Medina Baskets is a small, family-run business that, for many years, has worked with the artisans of Ghana. Through Kingdom Life Ministries, a Roanoke, Virginia group, Medina has worked with local weavers in Ghana to provide home-based production of baskets made from sustainable sisal, as well as supporting community schools and hospitals. Although this is a traditional craft, Medina has designed items for the modern home, combining the skills of the traditional artisans with the aesthetic perspective of the contemporary market for a successful partnership between rural communities around the world and distributors in the United States. All products and labor are fairly traded and no child labor is exploited.

Great for storage in every room of the house -- filled with wood by the fire, holding gloves and scarves for winter, overflowing with kids' toys or filled with towels. Accra baskets are handwoven in the villages of Ghana from sustainable sisal following ecologically and socially sound practices.
