Basket Ladies

Pure Fiji supports a community of women that live outside Suva. These women are kept busy weaving baskets that are used to package Pure Fiji products. The ladies claim to fame are the baskets they supplied for the launch of Pure Fiji at the Emmy Awards beauty event in 2002. This basket is now lovingly referred to as the 'Emmy basket' and has provided a little touch of gold dust in the community with the purchase of a water tank and payment of school fees for the children.
