An on-trend cactus plant adorns the side of this ethically hand-woven sisal basket, hand embroidered by Nduta, an artist working in Nairobi. This range of embroidered baskets is designed by The Basket Room in collaboration with British illustrator and designer Jacqueline Colley.

These ethical baskets are perfect for nursery storage but appeal equally to all of those with a colourful approach to interior accessories. Use yours as a planter for your favourite succulent, as a desk tidy, on your bedside table or in the bathroom for storing toiletries.  

Funky and practical, these baskets also serve a crucial purpose for their Kenyan makers. The weavers, taught by their own mothers and grandmothers, make a vital secondary income fulfilling orders from THE BASKET ROOM. In times of unpredictable drought, flexible work like weaving enables these women - who otherwise rely solely on farming income - to better support their families throughout the seasons.

Woven from natural undyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal.
