Shebobo was founded in 2011 by Kristen Schipper in San Francisco, CA. Kristen travels the world to work directly with skilled artisans. The Shebobo team consists of over 400 artisans that work in collectives around the countryside of Madagascar, an island east of Africa. With over 80% of the population of Madagascar living below the poverty level, it is imperative to Shebobo to support artisans with fair trade & fair wage practices to sustain families, communities and artisan traditions. Shebobo artists are proudly paid fair wages to continue the tradition of artisan handmade products. All Shebobo products are made from natural fibers, including raffia, rush, sisal & banana palm. These fibers are renewable, sustainable & biodegradable. The raw materials are hand dyed and prepared for looming by splitting the palm leaves into thread like balls of yarn for weaving or crocheting, using the same traditional weaving techniques learned over 100 years ago. Every accessory is unique, and there can be slight irregularities in the shade and shape of the bags due to the nature of its craftsmanship.
