New for 2019 and designed exclusively by The Basket Room, the KALI duo colour block baskets boast thick bands of neon pink and bright orange – a creative and unexpected coupling of colours that bring confidence and lift the spirits. Think Mexicana and Frida Kahlo! Produced in three sizes, these baskets can be put to use all over the home and repurposed as often as you like. Use yours in the nursery or playroom for storing toys or fill with loo roll and keep in the bathroom. Transform your indoor plants by homing them in a KALI woven basket, or use yours for storing dry foods in the kitchen. For more ideas, check out our basket uses page HERE.
These baskets are handwoven by a small collective of female weavers living near the Masinga Dam in Kenya – one of seven dams on the River Tana. Their chairlady started managing basket production in 1993, and today she leads several groups with specific production roles from twisting to dyeing and weaving sisal fibres.
Backing all the values of fair trade, our work with weaving cooperatives empowers women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to meet the needs of the family. When you take home one of our woven baskets you actively support these weavers and their families, supporting our commitment to dignified working conditions. You can see the weavers who produce these baskets HERE.
