One of our all time favorites is the beloved Johnny Cash singing about a boy named Sue. Let's hope the world will be kinder for our little ones, but we'll do whatever it takes to give them the best we can. Even if we have to name him Sue.
And for the baby girls we want to treat them like princesses, albeit ones who can handle a pea underneath their mattress of course. Sally means princess and is also forever connected to Sue by this other great singer, Bob Dylan: “Sally Sue Brown. Please let me love you, baby”.
These colorful, traditional Moses baskets are made by our local weavers in Ghana. Their craft was passed on to them by their parents, who in turn were taught by their parents. Because our baby baskets are handmade, every product is unique. These Moses baskets create an income for the weavers and with every bassinet we sell, their work circumstances get better. This we way improve women empowerment and kids can go to school. Of course we make sure the whole buying process is friendly and fair.
Sue & Sally supports Trinity Ghana Projects. By doing this we can give the children of Ghana a better future.
Imke is a mother of two boys (0 & 5 years old). Searching for a way to keep her newborn close while taking care of her oldest, she stumbled upon these Moses baskets from Ghana. She didn't want her baby to sleep alone in his room during the day, but also wasn't physically able to carry him around all the time. These woven bassinets proved tobe the answer to her dilemma; light weight, easy to carry around from room to room and big and comfy enough for the baby to sleep in. Experiencing the ease of these beauties, Imke decided to bring them to The Netherlands so others could share in her joy.
Imke works as a concept developer and a creative for tv shows & events.
Joyce has a little baby girl. Before motherhood she spent a lot of time in Ghana. She fell in love with the people, the bright colors and the stunning landscape. But also experienced the other side: poverty. She decided to do something about it. Joyce traveled the small villages and helped in all kind of possible medical ways. Everywhere she was, she experienced happy kids with a twinkle in their eyes, despite their penury.
Once home again in the Netherlands she wanted to do more. It had to help the people in Ghana in a way suitable to their situations and she decided to support them by giving them education.
