STORY

The Oye Tray has been crafted with the authentic reed, reflective of nature’s natural state. Practical for extra-wide surfaces that make items easy to move.  Our tray is a great solution to keep a coffee table organized or serve breakfast in bed.

Each handcrafted tray is made by a woman master weaver in Bolgatanga, Ghana, who has learned this skillset from her mother and other matriarchal figures in the community, during her childhood.  Handwoven from a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this sculpture takes roughly 3 days to complete. 

      Materials

      Elephant grass - organic material with authentic reed colour variations.
      Cowry shells.

      Dimensions

      19 W x 5 H "

      Care

      Care

      Your Woven Worldwide item will maintain its handcrafted qualities if it is not directly exposed to damp or wet environments and is stored inside its cloth case when not in use. Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of the woven product (whether it is in its authentic reed or pigmented) to experience discolouration. Prolonged pressure from heavy objects will cause the shape of the product to be distorted. It is best to limit the exposure of such elements to preserve the authentic look and feel of your product.

      When using cosmetics, perfumes or any alcohol-based solutions such as hand sanitizers, please take time to be sure that they are dry on your skin before engaging with Woven Worldwide products.

      There are sometimes tone variations in the colour of the reed and this is a natural feature due to when the grass was harvested and its maturity that should not be considered imperfections.

      • How We Work

        78% of our Artisan partnerships are with women who are often caregivers of small children. Slow fashion allows for a more flexible, small-batch model for the makers and honours craftsmanship at the core. Not placing pressure on our Partners offers the freedom of choice. The freedom for grandmothers, mothers, aunts & friends to create their own paycheque each week. Artisans weave communally and decide how many orders they can craft for Woven Worldwide and how often per week.

      • Visual Content

        With Artisan permission, we will be providing more behind-the-scenes content so you can be connected to our production where you will hear rich laughter, stories, music & reeds knocking. When you engage with our product, you interact with 5-14 days of an Artisan's life wrapped in product form.
