Do Good Shop founder Jenni has the pleasure of meeting Zellipah and her family when she was one of the keynote speakers at the annual Fair Trade Federation Conference. Miss Zellipah shared that she went from being a young woman vulnerable to poverty and exploitation, to an artisan herself, and eventually to the founder and owner of her own fair trade company!
Zellipah, began Gitzell FairTrade and showcased the artwork at both craft fairs and festivals. Zellipah continued working with artisans from several African countries and supporting over 220 families. The increasing sales at the craft fairs and festivals eventually led her to begin selling wholesale to US shops.

Our dye-free, fair trade U-shopper grocery tote basket is handwoven from Ghanaian dried vetiver grass and comes with a sturdy leather handle.
Container or utility baskets like these are durable and can be put to multiple uses, such as: a beach bag, carry-on or weekender, crafting or knitting caddy, farmer's market basket, grocery or shopping bag, hamper or laundry basket, handbag or tote, home decor basket, laptop carrier, picnic basket, pot planter, tabletop centerpiece, or for storage, to name a few!
Vetiver grass, also known as elephant grass, aids in soil and water conservation, helping smallholder farmers with environmental rehabilitation efforts, including erosion control, runoff retention and remediation of polluted land and water.
Dimensions: depth 11"-13"; diameter 16"-18"
Use this for entertaining (food safe), a catch-all for remote controls on an ottoman, in a kitchen, or accent item in the home. Wherever the placement, it is sure to be a conversation starter!
