CHEO: Coral and Green Duo Colour Block Woven Basket
Designed exclusively by us, the CHEO colour block baskets come in three handy sizes and sport broad bands of soft green against cheering languostino red. These handwoven baskets come in three different sizes and can be used as small planters and desk tidies, plus they’re great for storing jewellery, stationery, gloves and slippers, knitting, remote controls, toys and blankets.
All 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, 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.

HANDMADE IN KENYA
I bought two baskets as Christmas gifts for my mum and sister in law. Both were absolutely delighted with their baskets. So beautifully made, gorgeous colours, and an added bonus that the company is owned and run by such incredible women both here in the Uk and in Africa. Fabulous customer service. Will definitely be buying more in future!
