Funky design and timeless craft merge auspiciously -- adorning you in hand-crafted artistry and colorful sophistication -- and lead the way effortlessly through the week to casual Friday and beyond!

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.

  • Silver-plated hooks and accents
  • 2.5" L x 0.75" W (6.4 x 1.9 cm)
