Beautifully handcrafted. IMADI uses traditional materials and know – how to create beautiful and on trend modern bags, baskets and rugs. The main products from our workshop are the beautifully finished Senegal baskets, trimmed with leather. The weaving tradition passed down from mother to daughter, and from grandmother to grand – daughter is given new flavour in the choice of our colours, shapes and textures.
In the village of Thioker, nearest town Ngai Mekhe, 2 1/2 hours from Dakar, Senegal some eleven women have been given a lease of life. With a skill and know-how that is dying out, these ladies make the Ndonn basket. The Ndonn is a technique and weaving style which is dying out. Imadi has secured production of this Ndonn technique for 2 years, providing a livelihood for the Thioker grandmothers.
