Gitzell - Africa

The Gitzelli Fair Trade artisans work in Kenya and Ghana to weave beautiful, traditional baskets in many designs and colors.  Artisans live in low-income areas and make their living off selling their crafts or taking daily temporary labor for minimum wage.  In Kenya, the artisans come from wide parts of the country. Most weavers come from the Eastern region where the climate is dry and conducive to the production of the sisal -- this is their main source of income. 

In Central Kenya, most artisans have small pieces of land where they practice subsistence farming.  They subsidize their income through weaving products with banana leaf.  Gitzelli Imports has helped connect these artisans to bigger markets and enhance their low income.
