"We are so excited to be opening to the public," said owner Cael Chappell. "Our products used to have a big presence at Peacecraft, so ever since that closed we have been looking to promote our handmade, Fair Trade crafts in New Mexico."
Located at 4603 McLeod NE, at the corner of Jefferson and McLeod in Albuquerque, the showroom is open on Fridays 10 am - 4 pm, and by appointment.
"We will be open this Saturday to give people a chance to get a basket in time for Easter," said Chappell. "Our grass baskets from Ghana are perfect for that!"

"We are very proud to be members of the Fair Trade Federation," said Chappell. "Everything we do revolves around our mission to help the weavers and artists in Africa."
The showroom features Shona stone sculpture, handmade textiles such as Kente cloth and Kuba cloth, African masks, and baskets from over a dozen countries.
All of these products are also available online: www.BasketsOfAfrica.com, and www.AfricanAllure.com. To make an appointment, call (505) 323-2315.
