Description

Bring a little scandi style to the home with these beautiful soft grey and natural colour block baskets, hand woven in South Western Kenya. ITALE looks stunning on a nightstand or dressing table, filled with jewellery or scarves, or homing your favorite succulent or cacti plant as a stylish planter. Pop yours in the bathroom and use as a storage basket for loo rolls or toiletries, or bring a splash of calm to your work space by using yours as a chic desk tidy. Need more inspiration? Check out our basket uses page HERE.

These blocked colour baskets are hand made by a small Kenyan weaving cooperative of around forty members and a dye manager dedicated to maintaining colour quality and consistency. Baskets are all made from local sisal grass which is purchased ready-rolled when orders for these baskets come in from The Basket Room. This is then hand-dyed in large vats of boiling water and hung out to dry before a traditional twining method is used to create each basket. This weaving group is a highly accomplished collective of craftswomen who have practised this meticulous art from a young age, having been taught by mothers and grandmothers.

Our partnership with this small weaving cooperative empowers women to support their families with a flexible income in the dry seasons, where subsistence farming often fails to deliver everything the family needs to thrive. Buy one of our woven baskets and you actively support these weavers and their families. Each beautifully woven basket is supplied with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative, and you can meet these weavers right HERE.

Beautifully made and wonderfully useful

I actually ordered the wrong colour so I am exchanging this one for one of the Chali range which I prefer. Very nice girl is sorting it out for me when I phoned. A great service.

Missing dimensions

Excellent prompt service and a quality item. I imagine this product is somewhat “organic”, so precise dimensions will vary, but an approximation would be really helpful. The baskets were bigger than expected/wanted, but I imagine this would be a positive for some, just not me, hence 4* not 5.

Excellent

I bought these baskets for my mum as a present and she absolutely loved them. The quality is excellent and they look even better in real life than in the photos.
