Sustainable Gifts to Add to Your Wedding List

At The Wedding Present Company, we always strive to offer a wide range of sustainable wedding gifts. Some items are made using environmentally friendly techniques and some are made from recycled and repurposed materials. Here are some brands that offer sustainable wedding presents and a little bit about the companies.

LSA and Costa Nova

Artisanne: Sustainable Gifts

Artisanne

We love Artisanne. Not only do they produce the most beautiful woven baskets, but they do it with integrity.

Founded by two sisters, the brand champions the traditional weaving methods of Senagalese women. Thoughtfully sourced and skillfully made, every basket is handwoven in remote villages near Thiès in Senegal. By cutting out the middleman, Artisanne ensures that their weaver-women earn a regular, fair and secure income for their products. They donate 10% of all profits to provide transport for the weavers' children to get to school so that they don't have to walk 10km in 40C heat. 

The baskets are weaved from sustainable ndiorohk grasses intertwined with long strips of salvaged plastic traditionally used for making bazin mats, similar to prayer mats.
