The Wanderer was borne of an idea to source beautiful pieces from skilled artisan collectives in Africa and beyond and share them with the world. Offering stunning moses baskets and a gorgeous range of accessories and items for the home, this online boutique has a strong commitment to ethical trade. Working directly with their weavers The Wanderer offers family-friendly employment and fair wages, whilst harnessing and supporting traditional artisan skills.
Their handwoven bassinets offer beauty for the eye as well as being of the highest quality. Lovingly made from elephant grass, non-toxic dyes and cured leather, they offer a perfect sleeping space for little bubbas (and a simply divine addition to the room you are in!). Each basket comes with a custom-made mattress and a white organic cotton fitted sheet. Or opt for one of a small range of exclusive bassinet sheets in the finest luxury linen.
Their oval and bolga baskets offer wonderful, stylish, storage options for the home – for baby essentials, toys, sleeping furry friends – or just about anything, really! All baskets are woven in Ghana, paying wages that enable weavers to send their children to school. The Wanderer’s stylish classic palm leaf brimmed hat and strong bags are skilfully made by a small women's collective in the foothills of the Atlas mountains in Morocco.
The Wanderer recompense their weavers fairly for their craft, bypassing the middle-man and collaborating with the artisan. Additionally, they are proud to partner with Afrikids – an NGO who supports their basket weaving collective in Bolgatanga by offering start-up loans as well as helping provide education, child protection, micro-financing and healthcare in the region. £5 from each basket sold goes to Afrikids to support the valuable work they do.
