More Information About Woven Worldwide

  • High-quality Craftsmanship

    Our team and artisan partners were handpicked for their understanding of materials, process and passion for design. Whether you are browsing our site or visiting one of our stockists, we are always willing to share our deep knowledge and understanding of our craft

  • Unique, Raw Materials

    Due to the natural characteristics of elephant grass, each woven basket may have a slight variation in reed colour. When the grass was harvested, woven, and how long it was allowed to dry in the sun determine this. The natural reed gradient ranges from pale green to beige to mustard yellow. This gradient is a beautiful natural feature that should be admired.

  • Women-Led Value Chain

    We are dedicated to developing our products in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. We collaborate with Lizzy, a matriarch weaver and farmer who harvests elephant grass from living sources that can be replenished at the same rate as they are depleted.

  • Sustainable Design

    Designed for everyday use with functional dignity and durability. We purposefully design our pieces to be timeless. We believe in long-lasting items that are both physically and aesthetically pleasing, and we design products that are as timeless as they are stylish.
