Longaberger has partnered with a community of female artisans in Rwanda, Uganda & Ghana. Handwoven by a cooperative of women, each piece is unique and varies slightly in color and size. Made in an ethical and fair trade environment. A weaver handcrafted this basket using locally sourced raffia plant and sweet grass. This purchase guarantees fair, steady wages for the community who can now invest in their children's education, increase their savings, and plan for a hopeful future.
This trivet serves as a hot pad protector for any countertop or tabletop and is sure to be a conversation starter with family and friends you are serving. You can't go wrong with a trivet as a thoughtful hostess gift for mom, grandma, or a new neighbor! If you happen to give it to a non-baker, the woven trivets are ready to hang on your wall as a simple yet breathtaking piece of wall art.

If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean the basket.
After serving bread or other dried foods, turn the product upside down: shake and tap to release crumbs and residue.

Sun and fading
Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading.
All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.
Avoid temperature changes when possible.
If products are being stored for more than 2 weeks, please keep in a temperature controlled environment, elevated off of a concrete floor to avoid fluctuating cold and warm temperatures that could create mold.
