In soft yellow with a pop of baby blue on its rim, these AJILI woven bread baskets will bring true sustainable style to the table. These woven bread baskets can be used for rolls, sliced loaves or fruit, avocadoes, nuts or cutlery and napkins. They also make lovely bedside table baskets, perfect for keeping your watches, jewellery and toiletries in one stylish space. 

The Kenyan women behind these natural woven baskets all learned to weave baskets from their mothers and grandmothers, and practise this traditional craft within a small weaving group in rural Kenya. We visit these women as often as we can, and have built a strong bond with the weavers and their chairlady, Madam Dorcas over the years. Where once these weavers would undertake the long journey to Nairobi to sell their work at markets, The Basket Room now places regular orders with them, enabling these women to work more efficiently and sustainably from home. 

Basket weaving is work that is portable, sociable and flexible: these women weave throughout the day and the week, fitting in this reliable work around childcare and domestic chores. Weaving work supplements incomes made from farming, which can be unpredictable in the dry seasons.
