Welcome to THE ELEPHANT BASKET - Bags with Benefits!
Our beautiful range of Fair Trade and ethically traded bags, baskets and handicrafts comes from Fair Trade organisations, social enterprises and artisans in developing nations. Bringing these exquisite handmade creations to the Australian marketplace helps the artisans to gain financial security and independence.
Our aim is to put baskets on ladies arms to help get them off elephants backs and our mission is to raise awareness of the plight of the highly endangered Asian elephants, and to raise funds through sales to support conservation of the last of Cambodia's elephants and their precious forest home at the ELEPHANT VALLEY PROJECT in Cambodia. You can read more about the EVP on the 'About Us' page. At this time sales through this website will only be shipped within Australia. If you are overseas and wish to buy any of our products, please contact us so that we can arrange a special order.
