In addition to the wristbands (pictured below!), these hand-woven, recycled baskets are made by women coordinated by Mama Keriya (also pictured below), wife of artisan-shoemaker Apolinaire. They are crafted by the women's group from discarded shipping plastics found in their community, next to an imports/customs zone. 

These baskets are just as durable as atinga footwear, and serve as great totes for groceries, gardening ware, or anything needing storage around the house.
