The Artisanne Natural & Silver Round Tray is a really lovely piece that would look wonderful displayed on a coffee table, sideboard or even dressing table.
Finished in a natural colour with a soft silver trim, this tray will easily match any colour scheme or interior, whether it's filled with books, glasses or make up jars & perfumes.
Each Artisanne basket is beautifully and traditionally crafted by hand by artisan women in small villages near Thies in Senegal, which has a long history of basket weaving spanning back generations. The attention to detail is meticulous and the designs and patterns are contemporary whilst respecting the traditional weaving style of the region.
Artisanne works directly with the community of Senegalese women to ensure they receive all monies directly, thereby helping them earn a secure and fair income to support themselves, their families and their communities.
As each piece is made by hand, there are variations in size, pattern and colour which add to its charm and should be considered a mark of the weaver who made it.
