Our mission is to preserve their coil style weaving skill which is passed on through generations within Senegalese culture,by supporting local artisans,based in a village near Thiès in Senegal, working directly without middlemen and honoring them instead within our production .These artisans experience difficulty finding individuals to purchase their baskets locally, thus we support their craft and industry by sharing their talents within the western world.Additionally we aim to innovate in terms of sustainable materials to support our environment by using the natural ndiorokh grass , being biodegradable to avoid material waste which harms our planet.When you invest in Paniery you are supporting a better life and future for our Senegalese weavers and their families.
