An inquisitive llama - designed by illustrator Jacqueline Colley - peers out from the side of this beautifully handwoven storage basket. Woven in rural Kenya and embroidered by Nduta, a talented artist in the capital of Nairobi, this beautiful basket can be used all over the home - as a planter or desk tidy, or for keeping craft materials, pencils, toiletries or jewellery tidy.
These ethical baskets make delightful children’s storage and will also appeal to all of those with a playful approach to interiors - or a love of llamas! Use as a desk tidy or an indoor planter; use for storing your knitting or crafting bits; pop yours on your dressing table or use in the nursery for keeping toys, nappies or blankets tidy.
These trendy baskets also serve a fundamental purpose for the people who make them. 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 un-dyed sisal and sand-dyed sisal.
