A Christmas Message from The Weavers

Christmas! A magical time of year for giving and receiving...
But throughout the year, your support gives over 1000 weavers the greatest gift of all - work and an income. They would like to say THANK YOU for your support this year, and have expressed their gratitude in messages for us to pass on...

Madam Dorcas, Chairlady - Kenya 

"We started as a small group but now we've grown not just in numbers, but also as individuals. Our members are able to support their families and supplement the income they get from farming. To everyone that buys these baskets, we say Asante sana sana (Thank you so so much)."

Peninah, Chairlady - Kenya 

"The basket you are holding is made with love (laughter) My fellow weavers and I appreciate the opportunity of making these baskets and bags. Thank You."

Asabila, Cooperative Manager - Ghana

"We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation to the customers who buy our bolga baskets, which create employment for our women in Ghana. We say thank you and we wish to continue to do business with you next year."

Collections made by the cooperative: Bike Baskets & Rectangular Storage Baskets

The Basket Room now partners with twenty weaving cooperatives in rural Kenya and Ghana. Over the past two years, we have grown together as ethical businesses through a mutual respect for craft, people and the environment. 

We thank you for believing in these values too and supporting us this year. Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a magical New Year!

From 

Camilla, Holly, Kieru and Miri
