If you have had a moment to navigate around our website, you would know that giving back to the communities we work with is at the heart of everything we do. Our journey has just began and we still have a lot of plans in the works to create change and we believe no contribution is ever too small to make a difference.
Winning this award would present an opportunity for us to raise further awareness of our cause. To win this award would mean we could present our message to more and hopefully, ultimately, result in more resources we can provide to the children in Ghana who need it. I also hope by winning this award it would inspire more businesses to think about the wider impact they could have and to really consider how they could contribute to our future generations. We believe that success isn’t measured by profit but by how much of a contribution we can make.
We appreciate your continuing support and wish us luck!

The Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand have put together a guide to shopping Fair Trade gifts this Christmas. At this time of year, when consumerism is at it's peak, it is more important than ever to be mindful of the product choices and brands we choose to support.
Doing your research can be time consuming and so we appreciate the work the Fair Trade Association has put into this guide to ethical Christmas shopping for you. We are proud to be included in this ethical gift guide alongside some amazing brands doing great things to support artisans from all over the globe. We are sure you will find something for everyone in the family inside the Fair Trade Christmas guide.
Call it fake, call it a cheap copy, call it cultural appropriation…
Whatever it is, we do not like it one bit. Why? Because it is the artisan who will suffer. It is the artisan, the innovator, the original idea maker who loses out and it is down right unfair when those with greater resources, those in a more advantaged situation, replicate a product intrinsic to a particular groups culture, for their own financial gain.
You may have seen seagrass baskets identical to our hand woven baskets floating around in large department stores lately. What infuriates us is when these seagrass baskets are labeled and marketed as “Bolga baskets”.
