About Baskets of Africa:

Baskets of Africa was founded in 2002. Cael Chappell started working in African Art and Crafts in 1991 and fell in love with the incredible artistry and creativity of African basket weavers. This led to the creation of Baskets of Africa in order to focus attention on these amazing weavers and their work. He has been dedicated to the principles of Fair Trade throughout his career in Africa, so when he started Baskets of Africa, joining the Fair Trade Federation in 2003 was a natural fit.
