FAIR TRADE | HANDMADE The basket is made of seagrass by weavers from a cottage industry in Bicol, Philippines. WOVEN BASKET MATERIAL Abaca, musa textillis, a close relative of the banana plant. Harvesting abaca is labor-intensive. Each stalk must be cut into strips, which are then usually scraped by hands to remove the pulp. Abaca fiber is strong, durable, biodegradable and eco-friendly. Due to the handmade nature of our pieces, there may be slight variations in size, color, and pattern.

NEEPA HUT sells woven home accessories & crafts handmade by communities of weavers in Southeast Asia. Their mission is to preserve and promote the traditional skills, crafts, and heritage of artisans from areas affected by natural disasters, poverty, or over-development. Jennifer Shum Abelev is the Los Angeles-based social entrepreneur behind NEEPA HUT. Her desire to make a positive impact was sparked by spending time with artisan communities in Southeast Asia. She saw the women practice their respective crafts, and she was struck by their ingenuity and perseverance. So, Jennifer traded her career in finance and decided to focus on preserving the heritage of Southeast Asia artisans through NEEPA HUT. The crafts of NEEPA HUT's artisans shape the social fabric of their villages, and help the artists provide for their children and families. NEEPA HUT's values are inspired by the artisans’ dedication to the traditional methods of their crafts and their commitment to the sustainability of their land and its natural products. All of NEEPA HUT's goods are handmade and locally sourced in fair trade.
