Our mantra is connection through craft. By bringing the age-old craft of basketry to the global market, we empower thousands of talented women living rurally to support themselves and their families more sustainably throughout the seasons.

The Last Loom Weaver

Meet Bernard Nyerere Kimuli: one of the last loom weavers in Kenya. Bernard produces every single rug and mat sold by The Basket Room himself. Weavers like Bernard are few and far between, and his mats and runners are pieces of an extremely rare and precious craft.
