ASUBUHI: Green & Purple Duo Colour Block Woven Basket


£ 16.00




New for 2019 and designed exclusively by The Basket Room, the ASUBUHI duo colour block baskets boast bands of deep green and purple – a creative juxtaposition of colour that will bring joy to every corner of the home. Produced in three sizes, the ASUBUHI baskets can be used as indoor planters or flower pots, and can be used for storing all manner of household bits and bobs: slippers and blankets, remotes and cables, knitting, soft toys – the list is endless, but for more inspo 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 meet the weavers HERE.
