About the Process:

From a small mud hut in Apartheid-era 1970's Swaziland, Gone Rural has grown into a sustainable enterprise that empowers over 700 female artisans in Swaziland by teaching them practical skills for making beautiful, functional everyday objects. Surrounded by Lutindzi grass fields, farmers harvest this abundant, sustainable natural resource and sell it to local artisans. The grass is colored using eco-friendly dyes and dried in the sun. Women typically weave the baskets in their homes. On average, each basket takes 10-14 hours to complete, almost two full day's worth of work. Because most women in these communities are unable to work full-time jobs, basket weaving allows them the freedom to earn a fair wage while caring for their families and maintaining their homes.
