About This Brand: Traditional Craft Kits is a Family Run Business and each kit is “Hand Packed with Love.” In appreciation for worldwide cultural expression, our kits include designs from many locations. Once you learn the skill of creating a basket or piece of pottery, virtually any design can be woven into the basket or painted on the pot.
Because the average person in today’s world does not have access or time to prepare raw materials for basket making, we have chosen the best, most accessible and easiest to use materials for our kits. For example, raffia might not be a traditional material in the Americas, because it is found in the tropics, but it does a great job as a substitute to rushes, reeds, roots, split leaves, split twigs and sinew. Basically, we want you to learn the skills so you can continue to create more baskets with whatever materials inspire you.
