We found the most versatile basket set you'll ever find! Our crocheted basket trio is perfect for makeup in the bathroom, keys and change by the door, or as a little decorative pop...just because. Need to tidy up and keep it small? No problem at all. Just nest them together in a tight little bundle until you want to pull them out again.
Every 40 minutes a young woman is abducted for marriage in Kyrgyzstan. Some studies show 1 in 5 women have been kidnapped in this manner. Add to that a challenging economic condition in the rural regions, as well as a significant rate of alcoholism, and it's a recipe for heartbreaking situations. The domestic violence figures are staggering. Women can feel they have little or no choice to get out, which in turn has led to unusually high numbers of women imprisoned for killing their spouse or being tricked into trafficking by the promise of a job abroad. Our artisans in the central region of Kyrgyzstan use t-shirt yarn to crochet little bowls and baskets. Since they are paid a fair wage for their work, they bring home some much needed income, relieving some of the financial stress in the household.
