Founded by Leah Kessel and Raymond Kessel in 1996, Calabash Gifts has become Madison’s Year Round Art Fair.

Launched to provide Madison with an array of hand-crafted African items, Calabash has always believed in giving exposure to local craftspeople.

Each of the items is hand selected by curator Leah Kessel using fair trade policies and respect for the creativity of the individuals whose work is appreciated by so many people world-wide.
