ABOUT THE MAKER:
The Shebobo team consists of over 400 artisans that work in collectives around the countryside of Madagascar. These products are all-natural and made from renewable, sustainable, and biodegradable fibers, including raffia, rush, sisal & banana palm. The raw materials are hand-dyed with natural dyes and prepared for looming by splitting the palm leaves into thread like balls of yarn for weaving or crocheting, using the same traditional weaving techniques learned over 100 years ago.
With over 80% of the population of Madagascar living below the poverty level, it is important to support artisans with fair trade & fair wage practices, Shebobo artists are proudly paid fair wages, to continue the tradition of artisanal handmade products.
