Description

Designed in-house at The Basket Room and brand new for 2020, the KASUKU vegan basket bag boasts colour blocks of inky blue and pale grey. With twisted shoulder straps and no leather labelling, this one’s 100% vegan and totally plastic-free: a bag for the future. 

These woven basket bags are produced 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 our 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 see the weavers who produce these baskets HERE.

 

Material:  SISAL

Dimensions:  W45cm x H30cm approx (width is measured at the widest part of the bag)

Strap Length: 16cm approx

Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.

Great purchase

My overall experience with the Basket Room was great. The basket style and colors were exactly the same as pictured on the website. I loved seeing the wonderful photos of the women in their colorful native dresses.
