Meet the Artisans

This item is fairly made in Africa. Each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own home and community. The fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs or haggled prices. The artisans use their earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.


Our products will have slight variations in design and size, this is a natural occurrence in handmade goods and one of the many reasons we love them so.

No two designs will be exactly alike, giving you a lasting one-of-a-kind product to treasure for years to come.

If you are looking for specific dimensions on a product, please contact us so we can assist in finding the right fit.

Just as beautiful as pictured

This is such a nice large bolga basket. The quality and craftsmanship are beautiful. It did need to be sprayed and reshaped but that’s the character of handmade. So many uses planned for this basket!

Next level basket!

The leather handle and tight, handwoven pattern take this basket to another level! Trust me, you’ll want to hide your other baskets after having this beauty in your home. It’s medium sized and super sturdy as well. Mine is sitting on the floor next to a dresser where I can just admire it. Have your water spray bottle ready to reshape the basket after shipping and you’re good to go. Timeless design, and well worth the investment. I’ll be purchasing the little matching basket next!

I just received my second order, and I cannot express how happy I am with it. I ordered the long and the short brass wall sconces, candles, and the breathtaking votive candle chandelier. Everything came packaged very nicely and arrived in perfect condition.

My infant daughter recently spent some time in the ICU and her kantha baby blanket was one of the only things of hers from home that we had with us. It was a source of comfort and kept her warm and swaddled her over the cords for her entire stay. We love Connected Goods and these blankets specifically.
