In Swaziland, basket-weaving skills are handed down from mother to daughter. Tintsaba has built a women's development project from this traditional skill, uniting artisan craftsmanship with empowerment since 1985. A collective of over 750 female artisan weavers create beautiful baskets and jewelry woven from sisal using a local, time honored fine-coiling technique. All steps of the production are carried out by hand, including the cleaning, dyeing, and spinning of the naturally grown fiber. The women not only earn a much-needed income, they preserve a generations-old craft. Additionally, the project provides ongoing training for enhanced technical skills and design.
