With most of us owning bikes and using them as a form of transport to work, shop or just go hangout with friends, it’s about time we treat ourselves to a handwoven bike basket that looks hip and helps someone in need.

So if you have a plastic one—or a fake handwoven-looking one—replace it pronto with one from this artisan line of bike baskets.

Designed by weavers in West Africa for House of Talents, the handwoven bike basket line will help empower artisan groups in West Africa and get you compliments for your hippie chic taste.

The ‘Asungtaba’ -- which means "helping each other succeed" in Frafra -- range is unique because unlike other factory-made ones, these baskets are all handmade so no two bicycle baskets are alike. But the coolest thing about the ‘Asungtaba’ line is that you get the name of the weaver that actually created your basket for you.
