Plastic that would otherwise have been discarded is woven with cotton, finding new life in this handmade bag from Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans. By creating pieces such as this, makers in Ouagadougou find steady employment and earn fair wages.
Atelier de Formation et de Promotion des ArtisansAtelier de Formation et de Promotion des Artisans is comprised of nearly 400 artisans in and around Ouagadougou, the capital city, and several in Bobo Dioulasso, the economic center of Burkina Faso. Most of the artisans work at the Centre National D’Artisanat, the Village Artisanal de Ouagadougou, which was started in 2000 by the Luxembourg government to showcase the work of Burkinabe artisans, and the Maison des Artisans. These three centers double as workshops and exhibition spaces. In addition, a few of the artisans work in their homes.
