HANDMADE IN KENYA.
These natural woven baskets are hand made by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty ladies who have practised the art of basket weaving from a young age, having been taught by mothers and grandmothers. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when regular orders come in from The Basket Room, and the sisal is hand-dyed under the supervision of the cooperative’s dye manager in large vats of boiling water. Next, the sisal is hung out to dry before an intricate twining method is used to create each individual basket.
Committed as we are to the growth of fair trade, our partnership with this cooperative helps women to support themselves and their families more sustainably. Most weavers in this group are primarily subsistence farmers, but in the dry seasons this way of life can fail to meet the family’s needs. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and our commitment to empowering women. Each woven basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative.
