Say hello to the KODI duo colour block baskets, designed exclusively by The Basket Room for SS23 and featuring equal parts soft yellow and lavender. These beautiful, ethically-produced baskets come in three sizes, and can be used all over the home: on your desk, on bedside tables and shelves, in the bathroom, and even in the kitchen or on the dining room table, filled with fruit, dried flowers or bread. These baskets will live many different lives in your home over the years, moulding to your storage needs as they evolve. They also make beautiful woven planters, and inspired new home gifts.

Crafting within a weaving group empowers rural women to support themselves and their families with a reliable second income in the dry seasons, where farming alone becomes untenable. Weaving work takes place in quiet moments between childcare and domestic work, church and socialising. In fact, weaving is a social activity in itself, and women regularly meet to weave together, supporting and encouraging one another as they chat and work, and watch one another’s children. 

We have partnered with this rural Kenyan weaving group for several years now and we spend time with these women in person as often as we can. It is vital to us to constantly strengthen the connection between maker and buyer, sharing their stories and flying the flag for handmade crafts. 

These women are brilliant with colour, producing sisal in an array of shades through laborious hand dyeing, and their careful weaving work is equally impressive.  All of these women have woven baskets from a young age – having been taught this traditional African craft by female elders in their families and communities. What was once a traditional pastime is now an income stream for these hardworking women, and your purchases enable us to keep this precious craft alive.
