Bags and Hats
Shebobo works with artisans in Madagascar, Peru, and Guatemala to create beautiful handcrafts with fair trade and fair wage practices. Each bag is hand dyed and hand loomed using the same traditional weaving techniques learned over 100 years ago.The Shebobo team consists of over 400 artisans that work in collectives around the countryside of Madagascar, an island east of Africa. Our products are made from all natural fibers, including raffia, rush, sisal & banana palm. These fibers are renewable, sustainable & biodegradable. The raw materials are hand dyed 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 imperative to support artisans with fair trade & fair wage practices to sustain families, communities & artisan traditions. Their artists are proudly paid fair wages to continue the tradition of artisanal handmade products.
