Made only in an ethical, fair trade environment. Handwoven by a cooperative of women located in Uganda, this one of kind piece takes weeks to complete.
Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge or wash with water.
If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe the basket clean.
These delicately textured and handcrafted trivets were made by groups of women in intimate communities across Uganda. They use the sisal agave plant and sweet grass to weave them together.
Both committed to social good and with years of nonprofit experiences under their belts— Greg and Alicia still had one big question on their minds:
How can we really empower men and women to overcome poverty in their lifetime?
"We wanted to change people’s live not only through aid, but also through creating
a sustainable enterprise where a family’s income is permanently improved. "
“We believe women and men in rural areas in Africa can be agents of change for themselves, their families, and their community when given the proper training and consistent access to global markets. Their talents and gifts are incredible.”
At KAZI, we’re equipping and empowering women and men to succeed beyond their biggest dreams. Now, these women and men send their kids to school without traditional aid, through their own hard work.
KAZI's mission isn't just to bring handcrafted things to your living room. They are bringing you beautiful pieces that add life to your space and empower artisans to weave a better story for themselves.
At KAZI, we believe that everyone deserves to make a fair wage to support
themselves and those around them, no matter where they are in the world. We don’t just measure success by how many products or services we’ve sold—but by how the lives of our artisans and their communities improve over time, too.
