Natural Ndonn Weave Storage basket with a lid.
Emmela is the first to bring you the NDONN baskets. They are very special baskets handcrafted only by a handful of skilled weavers. These baskets can be used for logs or kindling or for storage like blankets.
Fatou @ IMADI has secured small batch production in two villages. It’s important to her keep this skill alive whilst the knowledge is available. It’s the older generation - the grandmothers that are teaching the younger women in the village to weave the Ndonns. It provides a pension plan for a generation of women that wouldn’t necessarily have the means of earning a wage.
- NDONN baskets a long lost weaving skill, using reeds from Guinea Conakry and palm leaf fibres only from Senegal.
