⭐FAIR TRADE & MADE IN PANAMA: Made under safe working conditions and fair income. MolaMagic provides equitable trade opportunities, Job development skill training and promoting responsible production in the Panamanian economy. Our Vintage woven Hanging Baskets are proudly made in Panama.
⭐THE HANGING BASKET STORY: The Wounaan and Embera people from the rainforest in Darien province of Panama are master artisans. The Hanging Baskets are hand woven using natural fibers found in the forest. A variety of reeds and palm fibers are normally used. Chunga, the fiber of the black palm, is the fiber of choice among the weavers. The colors are produced with natural extracts of plants and earth, using the traditional methods for dyeing Hanging Basket fibers. Seldom, if ever, are two Hanging Baskets alike. The original designs usually portray life in the village, local animals and insects, or plant life. Income earned from the sale of these lovely Hanging Baskets reduces the need to destroy the rainforest
⭐WOMEN FOUNDED: MolaMagic was envisioned by Janet Marie Brockman with the mission to empower the Indigenous Women of Color of Panama by helping them reach a global market for their handmade products. For the past twenty years all sales revenues have been reinvested into the artisan community of Panama. This includes education, medical care, land purchase, tools, and other needs.
