Unique and expertly hand woven, the KUNDI laundry basket sports a stylish black band against a biscuit-coloured base dyed with soot.

Created by one of the most experienced members of the women’s weaving cooperatives in the rural Eastern Region of Kenya, this versatile laundry hamper is hand woven from local sisal fibres. The stiff leaves of this fibrous shrub are harvested, rolled and dyed by hand before six days of weaving begins. Each laundry basket takes forty balls of sisal to complete, whilst two expert leather workers (known locally as ‘fundi’) produce KUNDI’s leather trim and handles. 

Deep and strong enough for storing logs by the fireplace yet equally soft and supple enough for bathroom or nursery storage, this versatile laundry basket can be put to use all over the home as your needs change.

Our woven laundry baskets each tell an important story about collaboration and sustainable living. By owning any of our woven baskets you become part of this narrative, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming. You can meet the weavers HERE.

Stunning basket which has transformed my laundry experience

Who would have thought that something so beautiful and functional could give so much joy? This basket looks beautiful in my room, discreetly hides my dirty washing, is big enough to hold everything from clothes to towels and makes carrying the washing to the washer easy and effortless. The basket itself is very well made. Thank you. Well worth the money.
