Spring converting into Summertime 2023 is finally here, and what better way to celebrate the new season than with some vibrant and handmade baskets from Africa? Gitzell FairTrade International has just launched a new collection of colorful baskets that are perfect for any occasion.
Zelli, the founder of Gitzell FairTrade, has been working with artisans from several African countries since 1998. She was inspired to create Gitzell FairTrade when she came to the US to attend college and brought a suitcase full of souvenirs that she had been gifted by her nieces in Africa. She showcased the artwork at both craft fairs and festivals and saw the potential for empowering artists and supporting local communities.
Since then, Zelli has been working with over 220 families and communities to create ethical, high-quality products. Gitzell FairTrade International has a mission to empower communities through fair trade practices by providing fair wages, safe working conditions, and access to education and healthcare.
