OUR STORY

Hey! We're wicker wings.

We're a family business on a mission to give female artisans financial independence through our handmade, sustainable wicker bags.

Wicker Wings started as a brother and sister duo, Belinda and James, who after finding out our Māma (Grandma) handwoven baskets in her village in China in hope for a better life. Fast forward 30 years and this is still the case in rural parts of Asia today.

So we created Wicker Wings as a way of shining light on our grandmother’s past and support the current generation of these incredible female artisans.

We want to help current female weavers so they can have the same financial independence our Mama had.

MEET GRANDMA

Growing up in China our Grandma, who we call Mama" (奶奶), could not afford higher education. Instead she turned towards weaving baskets in her small village and did this all of her life, up until she built enough money for herself and her children.

Without weaving, our Grandma would not have been able to provide for herself or her children. And it's down to us to continue "Mama's Mission” and together can provide an income to women just like our Mama, through creating beautifully handmade wicker handbags.

MAMA's Mission

to support women in their pursuit for independence, just like our mama (奶奶).

our FEMALE ARTISANS

Back in the 60s in China, our Mama was a part of 100% female artisan workforce. Fast forward to today, in a small village in Indonesia where our baskets are made, women make up 90% of the weavers. Not a lot has changed.

Like many women across the globe, our weavers do not have the resource for further education and living in small villages, opportunities like wicker weaving is a steady source of income.

We want to help current female weavers so they can have the same financial stability our Mama had.
