Description

Embrace the colour blocking trend with our bright sunflower yellow and natural coloured baskets, hand woven in South Western Kenya. These extra large storage baskets are perfect for toys, house plants and towels.  Need more inspiration? Check out our basket uses page HERE.

Our coloured baskets are produced by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty members, with a dedicated dye manager who oversees colour quality and consistency. Sisal grass is sourced ready-rolled when regular orders come in from The Basket Room, and is hand-dyed in large vats and hung out to dry before a traditional twining method is used. This is a highly skilled workforce of women who have woven from a young age, having been taught by the family matriarch. Using their own tape measures helps the weavers produce the set sizes we offer. This group meets weekly to receive new orders, deliver completed baskets, and receive payment.

Our partnership with this cooperative helps women to support their families more comfortably, since subsistence farming alone often fails to meet the family’s needs. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers’ livelihoods, and our commitment to empowering women. Each woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative, and you can meet the weavers HERE.

If you need a specific size please let us know prior to placing your order.

Please note, due to the handmade nature of the basket, the tone of colour may vary to that shown in the photograph.
