The Artisanne Set of 2 Coasters with Red Trim are practical and decorative. These simple coasters, with their fiery red trim are easy to match and to use daily at the kitchen or dining table, at your desk or on a coffee table, adding a little pop of colour where they go.
Each Artisanne piece is 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.
