DIDI: Natural Woven Moses Basket & Wooden Rocking Stand Package
Introducing lovely DIDI & matching Wooden Rocking Stand.
This ethically-produced Moses basket boasts simple and natural undyed sisal with soft brown carry handles made from sustainably-sourced goat’s leather. DIDI is the ultimate ethical baby gift, and a stylish addition to any nursery. The stand is made in the UK using ethical practices and sustainable materials.
The weavers have been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers. Agricultural work is the mainstay of most weavers’ family incomes, but poor rainfall and drought makes life extremely challenging. Basket weaving, and producing these exquisite woven Moses baskets, brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.
Each Moses basket takes around three days to weave, using veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) which grows wild in Ghana and is remarkably sturdy when woven. These Ghanaian Moses baskets are the perfect napping space for new arrivals.
Every basket comes with a soft, quilted hypoallergenic foam mattress with a washable cover and an organic jersey cotton fitted sheet.
Material: Veta Vera Grass & Leather
Dimensions: L:80cm x W:43cm x H:25cm (at hood) approx
