This beautiful hand woven table setting for six is made in the Kingdom of Swaziland.
The grass is cut and dyed indigo then woven into place mats, pot trivets, and a decorative basket. The whole set is beautifully boxed and comes with six mini candles in hand made pottery candle holders.
This beautiful gift set is made by a company in Swaziland that, enables the women to work together using traditional weaving skill to earn a living, allowing them to stay within their community and not have to move to the urban areas to look for work.
The Swazi Company's work directly affects the lives of 1000 families in the rural areas. When a woman joins a group, she is required to commit to a monthly meeting attend workshops and complete the order that she has been given.
