Visit to Brama Town!

06.04.23

On a sunny day, April 5th, the Aurora Foundation’s staff embarked on a field trip to Brama Town. This charming village is home to the talented basket weavers who create the woven products sold under our Sweet Salone brand.

During our visit, we had the opportunity to put our weaving skills to the test under the guidance of the skilled weavers. It was a fun and enjoyable experience. We express our gratitude to Chief Samuel and the weavers of Brama Town for warmly receiving us, showcasing their mastered techniques and processes. We eagerly look forward to our next visit.
