Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Boasting stylish pinstripes in sundial white against a natural sisal base, our HOTUBA baskets are handwoven in Kenya from local sisal in three different sizes, so there is one for almost every home storage need. One wonderful thing about woven baskets is that they keep meeting your storage needs over time: fill yours with pens and pencils if you need a stylish desk tidy, or use yours for make-up and jewellery on your dressing table. Use a small basket for remote controls and cables, and our medium and large woven baskets make lovely storage for slippers, gloves, scarves and rugs, toys, laundry and craft projects. These natural pinstripe baskets also make beautiful woven planters for your houseplants – and we can’t think of a more perfect new home gift for someone who loves a natural home.

The craftswomen who produce these HOTUBA natural woven baskets all learned to weave sisal from a young age, and practise their craft within a small collective in rural Kenya. We visit this talented group as often as we can, and have built a strong bond with the craftswomen and their inspiring chairlady, Madam Dorcas over the years. Before we started working with this group, these weavers would have to make the long journey to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets at markets. These days, the women work safely and more efficiently from home, thanks to our ability to place regular and large basket orders with this group.  

The bulk of basket production takes place during Kenya’s dry seasons, since most of these weavers are from farming communities who rely on farming – and therefore, steady rainfall - to feed, support and clothe their families. When farming slows down, weaving work picks up the slack. Purchasing one of our woven baskets helps us in our mission to empower African craftswomen and preserve this age-old craft.
