The Utopia Collection
Brand new for Summer 2022, we are delighted to bring you The Utopia Collection. A hopeful project born out of the winter UK lockdown, these beautiful Kenyan-made bucket bags, totes and crossbody bags were dreamed up by The Basket Room co-founder Camilla Sutton and British designer Hannah Harrison - whose previous clients include Lulu Guinness, Paul Smith and Jigsaw.
Each piece in this very limited collection speaks to a longing for freedom, joy and connection, and is the work of many pairs of skilful hands and creative minds. From rural Kenyan basket weavers to one single embroidery artist, a group of exceptional leatherworkers and a brazier (brass worker) in Nairobi, each handwoven piece is a symbol of unity.
Featuring colourways, styles and motifs that represent peace, hope and togetherness, The Utopia Collection connects maker and owner intrinsically through this vibrant, sustainable craft.
