Gifts that give back

gifts that give back

New Orleans has been through a rough time but it is in tough times that you see the real spirit of the people who make NOLA the special place that it is. It is hard to keep a great city down and as we start to recover we need to remember those who helped to make sure that the residents of our great city felt as safe and protected as possible as we all battled the invisible enemy who was trying to take us down. At the Basketry, we have always been people-oriented and we believe in giving back to the city, to the workers and to all of our customers.
