Injabulo

InjabuloLogo

Injabulo is a specialist seller of fairly traded baskets sourced from across the African continent.
We work hard to source a diverse range of baskets, mainly from women’s cooperatives which allows them to showcase their traditional skills and cultural techniques and generate income which allows them to improve their quality of life, health care and send their children to school.
This year we are introducing a new range of baskets from Rwanda. All of our baskets are both beautiful and practical, vibrant in colour and much loved by crafters of all disciplines who appreciate the work and the diversity of usage.
In addition we continue to sell a range of beautiful handmade and handpainted buttons from South Africa.
