Embrace the heart and spirit of Africa with a handmade necklace woven from the versatile fibers of the sisal plant. A colorful addition to your wardrobe that helps connect you to artisans working to preserve their culture and crafts in a global marketplace.

In Swaziland, basket-weaving skills are handed down from mother to daughter. Tintsaba has built a women's development project from this traditional skill, uniting artisan craftsmanship with empowerment since 1985. A collective of over 750 female artisan weavers create beautiful baskets and jewelry woven from sisal using a local, time honored fine-coiling technique. All steps of the production are carried out by hand, including the cleaning, dyeing, and spinning of the naturally grown fiber. The women not only earn a much-needed income, they preserve a generations-old craft. Additionally, the project provides ongoing training for enhanced technical skills and design.

  • Sunset or Earth
  • Made of handwoven and dyed sisal fiber with cord and ribbon
  • Magnetic clasp
  • Approx. 1.5" dia. (3.8 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Swaziland

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
