A funky pineapple, exquisitely hand-embroidered, adorns this hand-woven storage basket. Woven in rural Kenya and embroidered by Nduta, a talented artist in the capital of Nairobi, this beautiful basket can be used all over the home - as a planter or desk tidy, or for keeping craft materials, pencils, toiletries or jewellery tidy.
Not just practical and on-trend, these baskets also serve a crucial purpose for their Kenyan makers. The weavers, taught by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a vital secondary income weaving baskets. In times of unpredictable drought, flexible work like weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on farming income - to better support their families throughout the seasons.
Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal. This beautiful range of embroidered baskets is designed by The Basket Room in collaboration with British illustrator and designer Jacqueline Colley.
