Ottilia carries shoppers by Heddle & Lamm. They are handmade in farming villages in the Bolgatanga region of northern Ghana. They are woven from durable elephant grass. If the basket gets out of shape, Heddle & Lamm advises submerging it in warm water then reshaping it with your hands and let it dry before use.
Heddle & Lamm work directly with the artisans that make their products. They are committed to fair trade practices and ensuring that their weavers and artisans are well compensated.
These ethically sourced home goods from artisan communities around the world not only support local artisans, but 10% of the proceeds donated go back to children’s education in those same communities.
