OK we know they are not baskets but if you've been to see us at any event, you will have met Steve, Henrietta or Jake, our raffia giraffes.
These gorgeous raffia woven animals have been much admired and loved, so we thought we should add them to our website in case you can't make it to a show.
The perfect household pet - no food, walking or litter tray required!
They are handmade by a family group with a small shop in the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo. The whole family is involved - mother, father, aunts and uncles - and are able to employ up to 20 adults when a big order is received. The money received ensures they can have a better life style and provide their children with a decent education, which is why we ensure we pay fair trade prices.
They are unique as each is handmade so some may have different coloured manes and tails or faces from the photos we have put on the website.
NB!! Because of the height of the large giraffes, we are only able to send them via courier to any country outside the UK. Please contact us for further information.
