STRAWBERRY: Fruit Motif Embroidered Woven Storage Basket

£ 39.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A pair of sweet strawberries designed by illustrator Jacqueline Colley embellish this ethically hand-woven sisal basket. Woven in rural Kenya and embroidered by a Nairobi based artist named Nduta, this small storage basket can be used all over the home - as a woven planter or desk tidy, or for keeping craft materials, pencils, toiletries or jewellery in.

This design belongs to a growing collection of embroidered baskets that Nduta has worked on for The Basket Room, and this strawberries basket is brand new for 2023.

Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal, these hand embroidered baskets bring vital work to several groups of Kenyan artisans. The weavers, taught basket weaving by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a safe and reliable secondary income from this craft. In times of drought, flexible work like basket weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on a farming income - to more comfortably support their families throughout the seasons.
