How we work
what materials are used in your baskets?
Use this text to answer questions in as much detail as possible for your customers.
how do your source your baskets?
We dont. At the beginning of the company we sourced from 2 suppliers. Since then, we have learned best practices to develop our own team and build one on one relationships with each artisan; void of suppliers.
Our goal is to work with as many artisans and independent artisans as possible. We take great care in direct relationships with each artisan, to ensure quality and so that everyone can enjoy products from our small businesses without any doubts about their origin or quality!

These lead dates are subject to change due to shipment delays beyond our control. Harvest season, cultural festivals, and existing production schedule are some examples.
What are you doing to be more sustainable?
Each basket we craft is the product of hundreds of years of Ghana's ancestral weaving methods, and producing with the highest-quality materials. We vet the artisans we partner with and our raw materials to make sure they meet our standards, are good for you and better for the environment. In addition to thinking about the impact on people and the environment, we consider factors like availability, fashion cycles in contrast to Ghana's harvest season and water.
does Woven Worldwide provide training to artisans?
Due to exposure of international retail environments and cultural lineage, our workshops are truly an interactive process that promote a hybrid of ancestral weaving techniques; weaving quality control, self-identity, and global aesthetics.
Our training standardizes production in an informal market, and provides artisan leaders with tools, resources and innovative ways to preserve and improve heritage techniques.
From hand-crafted accessories made by local artisans to island-inspired formulas, every product has a story.
ARE THERE CHILDREN ON YOUR WEAVING TEAM?
Our products are not crafted by basket weavers under the age of 18.
