The Basket Room is an interiors brand specialising in handwoven storage baskets for the home and accessories. Founded by Camilla and Holly in 2014 who met studying fashion design at art college, and have come together years later after gaining experience in design, production and retail to found The Basket Room. Holly started her ethical journey in fashion on a road trip from South Africa to Nairobi, when her eyes were opened to another side of the industry. Camilla quit her fashion job in London to explore her dreams of sourcing intricate and locally crafted decorative products from this East African hub of creativity. 

Basket weaving is a craft as old as mankind. For millennia, folk have been binding and plaiting natural fibres, weaving vessels of all shapes and sizes for trading, storing and transporting goods in. Anthropologists have found evidence of basketry buried beneath the pyramids of ancient Egypt, and with the help of explorers who have roamed the world for centuries, different methods and styles of basket weaving have reached all corners of the globe.

And the journey continues today as we continue to explore Africa in search of the most remarkable weaving communities: women plying their precious trade as their mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers have taught them to. Buying our baskets helps ensure that daughters and granddaughters will continue to weave, and continue to benefit from the fair wages and dignified working conditions that come from working within a cooperative.
