Our new addition to the Fairly Friendly list this week is Bridge for Africa, a non-profit organization that focuses on providing fair markets for the art and crafts of Africa. Their main products are baskets and jewelry, with some additional home décor items and accessories as well.
I love their colorful baskets made from upcycled telephone wire. Perfect for adding a pop of color to a room, and the durable material is washable, too.
Most of the jewelry created by Bridge for Africa artisans is made of beads and wire. I particularly like their series of beaded geometric bangles.
Bridge for Africa also offers a variety of bags, some delicate and beaded, and some in bold, bright fabrics like the tote above.
Bridge for Africa is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and is a Green America Approved Business. (Learn more about different ethical certifications.)
