Description

Alaffia shoulder baskets are used traditionally in Togo, West Africa to hold coins awarded to ceremonial dancers. Members of Alaffia basket cooperatives receive fair wages and health care for their families in return for indigenous skills and knowledge. This exchange empowers West African communities and preserves cultural heritage.
